I haven't seen these ever directly compared. Both on the A7RIV using the Sigma MC-11 and the Sony LA-EA3/LA-EA4R.

The Canon is better aligned and has less purple fringing but is more susceptible to veiling glare in these backlit scenes. The Canon is noticeably lighter despite needing both aperture and focus motors in lens.
