Sony a7RIII vs Nikon D850 vs Sony a7RII

There has been a lot of talk about the Sony a7RIII vs Nikon D850 when in the dynamic range department, but does Nikon have the glass to compete with Sony? The above 100 ISO image from imaging-resource’s Sony A7R III First Shots are here seems to indicate that the Sony a7RIII has an edge over the Nikon D850 when resolving detail. IR’s article has a few more comparisons, but the above image is probably the most blatant. The other images IR has on their site show that by ISO 6400 the Sony a7RIII also has a pretty substantial noise advantage, with the Nikon D850 looking muddy in my eyes. What do you think? Take a look here.

    The A7rIII image is sharper, could be focusing accuracy, lens resolution or a combination of both.

    • Could be, but the other direct example shows exactly the same results. I doubt they made a focusing error.

        The differences are minor but the A7RIII has a slight edge IMO.

      IR images are manually focused. They don’t use AF for studio shots, and plus aperture is way to small for focus or lens be an issue. These are shot at F8 where all high quality lenses are sharp.

      The real reason or difference is probably better jpeg engine on Sony. These are incamera jpegs

    In the eye of the Sony beholder….
