I remain very impressed with the Sony A7 and A7R full frame mirrorless cameras. Now that DxO Mark results are out, it looks there’s good reason to buy into the hype of these new cameras. The 36MP A7R scored virtually identical in image quality to the Nikon D800 and D800E (both are also 36MP).
While the Nikon D800E remains atop the list for full frame image quality, the A7R scored only negligibly lower than it. For all but the number crunchers, the cameras are capable of producing the same image quality.
And for further measure of the A7R’s quality, it heavily outscored the Canon 5D Mark III in overall quality.
