Sony 7rV images added to Dpreviews comparison tool: “ahead of its full-frame rivals”


Dpreview advanced their ongoing A7rV review and added the images within their Studio scene comparison tool. They write:

The a7R V shows a comparable level of detail to that of its immediate predecessor, putting it ahead of its full-frame rivals but behind the likes of Fujifilm’s GFX 100S. There appears to be no low-pass filter, so there’s a risk of aliasing and false color in high-frequency, high-contrast details. It’s a little noisier than its rivals, which becomes more apparent at very high ISOs.

Excellent sharpening means the JPEGs make the most of the detail difference between the a7R V and its full-frame peers whereas, conversely, sophisticated noise reduction helps reduce the noise differential between models. JPEG color is good too, as our real-world shots attest. Magentas aren’t as saturated as those of Canon, and there’s a slight hint of peach to pink ‘skintones,’ while the mid blues are richer than the other cameras here, giving a punchier look to daylight skies. Oranges appear a touch more saturated, which could explain why the yellows lean slightly that direction, rather than green, but these differences are within the realms of the margin of error that 1/3EV exposure steps give, when trying to match lightness between cameras. The critical thing is that real-world use bears out the positive impression we got from our test scene.
