Sony a7R II Resolution and Noise Test Results

Resolution and noise test results along with specifications have been added to the Sony a7R II Review page.
 
Creating perfect apples-to-apples comparisons between different systems is very difficult and I ask you to use careful discernment as you make such comparisons. In the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R noise comparison, I see more noise in the higher resolution camera (a higher pixel density sensor showing more pixel-level noise is expected), but the difference is slight and partially due to the Canon noise details being rendered slightly sharper (sharpening the noise).
 
I don't have under and overexposed examples available for the EOS 5Ds R in the noise comparison tool (at least not yet), but do have them for the EOS 5D Mark IV. In this case, the Canon has lower pixel density (and resolution) to its pixel-level noise advantage. With that difference in mind, the a7R II vs. 5D IV comparison shows the 5D IV results having slightly less noise and less grain to the noise when exposures are pushed 3 stops. Whether the less-grain difference is positive or not is a bit of a personal preference and the processing of the RAW images may come into play here.
 
Here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5Ds R resolution comparison. And, here is the Sony a7R II vs. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV resolution comparison.
 
If you missed the post earlier this week, the Sony a7R II Review page has a brief discussion on the Sony RAW converter and processing settings decision process.
 
B&H has the Sony a7R II with a $300.00 rebate. As I said before, to get a huge bargain, trade in any camera or lens (even something of very low value) and get an additional $480.00 off of this camera (in addition to the trade-in value) or a significant amount off of many other Sony products.
