Looking at the skull shelf I prefer the NEX 6 from ISO 400 to 1600, lots more detail, especially at 800 and 1600. Could be other factors involved. Like different focus. Looks like the NEX 6 might kick in noise reduction later or something.


Looking at the medicine box, I'd say there's a lot more detail on A6k. The text is more legible at ISO3200 than NEX6 is at 1600.

The skulls themselves do seem to look a bit better on NEX, but given the 3d nature of those, I'd say you're right that there is indeed slightly different focus that's probably more significant than the sensor differences.
