24 Megapixel APS-C Shootout: Sony NEX-7 vs Nikon D7100 (with Zeiss 50/2 Makro-Planar)

The Nikon D7100 has favorably impressed me, so I wondered: does the Sony NEX-7 sensor hold up to the D7100 sensor? With the D7100 sensor having no anti-aliasing filter and the NEX-7 now nearly 18 months old, might the D7100 show a clear move forward?

In Guide to Mirrorless I present a comparison of the Sony NEX-7 versus the Nikon D7100 using the Zeiss 50mm f/2 Makro-Planar, bracketing in 1mm increments to ensure a rigorous focus match.

The usual retina-grade images and crops are presented, at f/2 and f/8.

The very interesting perspective I see here is that more and more, it is form factor, lens choice, ergonomics and features which might become the deciding factor in the years ahead. Neither camera “nails it” for me, but both have their merits in different ways.
