A) who has the worlds best full frame sensors today?

It is sony for sure and not Canikon.

Best how?

Using DxO, the sensors in the Nikon Df and Canon 6D have slightly better SNR 18% than the one in the Sony A7. They have better DR above ISO 1600.   Same or better tonal range across most ISOs.   The Sony has better low ISO DR.  It's color sensitivity starts out a little better than the Nikon at base ISO then falls to the same as the Canon at high ISO.   Really it's the mainly low ISO DR the Sony sensors shows a significant improvement (due to the on sensor ADC.)

Of course you know that in the Sony corporate structure, the Digital Imaging Group (that makes cameras) is connected to the Semiconductor Group (that makes sensors) only in that they share the same CEO at the tippy-top.
