let's see

a7s about 10 to 15% smaller and maybe 30% lighter. no built in flash. best lens are $900 or more and those lens r not as good as the best in nikon's lineup that cost half that amount. Live view is much much better. Nikon's is not to good actually pretty bad in live view. Other then that Nikon has it beat by a lot.

Yeah. Sure. Or maybe not - this is from DPR's review of the 55mm f1.8 E mount:

"The scale of Sony's achievement here becomes clear when comparing the FE 55mm F1.8 directly to the Zeiss Otus 55mm F1.4, which lays a strong claim to being the best lens for which we have test data. The Otus still just about comes out on top - it measures as slightly sharper wide open - but it's unlikely any difference will be particularly visible in real-world photography. The Otus also just about wins out on chromatic aberration and distortion, but overall the Sony can certainly wear its Zeiss badge with pride.

Compared to the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II or Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G, the Sony is quite simply in a different class in terms of wide-open sharpness. This is only to be expected, given its much higher price and far more modern design, but it does give some idea of why Sony feels it can charge a premium for the lens. The Zeiss also beats Nikon's latest, and even-more-pricey AF-S Nikkor 58mm f/1.4G for sharpness in these tests - it really is very good indeed."
