However ... my D7100 has almost identical pixel sizes compared with my Z7. I shot the same scene off a tripod with both cameras using the Nikkor 200-500 and when I cropped the Z7 image to render the same scene, the Z7 image was clearly sharper. It probably has to do with the lack of an AA filter on the Z7 - everything else was the same as I raised the mirror before exposure on the D7100 and used mechanical shutter on the Z7.

Actually the D7100 doesn't have an AA filter either.

I guess it might be that the Z7 AF was more accurate. That or some subtle difference in the sensors that's above my pay grade.

Hmm, thanks.

I cannot remember whether I used auto or manual focus on the tests. But the differences were visible, even without sever pixel-peeping. I will repeat the tests, sometime ... maybe.
