Nikon D5500 vs Sony A7II

Yep, low level APS-C vs 3x priced FF camera. Madness?

I am a SONY user, A7II is MINE. D5500 is my father's. I am shocked.

All shots are made with equal f stop (f8 mainly, to be sure the lens is sharp as it can be). EXIF is there.

Almost the same. Lets see 100% crop.

SAME! Cheap FF camera gives same level of detail as FF camera! WOW!

Colors are better!

Auto WB is better even under easy lighting!

Auto WB under incandescent light id fantastic!

Yes, Noise levels from D5500 are a stop worse then from Sony A7 II. BUT look at how cameras use Auto ISO! I must admin I am totally impressed with Nikon D5500!

Lots more pair shots here -
