    Both these images were shot with a Godox AD600 on the left set to supply 30% fill.
    Both these images were shot with the same Canon 100mm/f2.0 lens.
    One of these photos was taken with the Canon 5D-III
    The other with a Sony 7R-II

    Who's game to take a stab at which was which?

    (Sony image was converted from raw, reduced to 5000 pixels, and colour temp adjusted to the same as the Canon because it was way too cold)

    My guess is that the second one is the Sony, first one the Canon. A couple of reasons, but I won't say why I think that just yet.

    Second one has more bokeh blur
    But I have no idea whether a shorter focal length from using the A7 makes that more or less.. hmm.

    Same lens, same sized sensors.

    Yea. I mean the distance between the lens and the sensor. The canons would be bigger.
    But then you'll be using an adapter on the Sony..

    Heh I guess I have no idea then!

    Correct. The focal plane distance is one of the things the MC-II adaptor sorts out.

    yeah focal distance from sensor isnt the same as focal length
    and as you mentioned, the adapter puts it back to the same focal plane anyway :)

    I am waiting for your reasons for making the choice you did. ;)

    - So the bokeh in the 2nd shot has a definite harsher edge to it (less pleasing) whereas in the first shot it doesn't, if the lens had that as a characteristic natively it should show in both shots - conclusion the adaption to the Sony caused the less pleasing Bokeh
    - The 2nd shot, to the left of her head in both shots there are some fine strands of hair - in the first shot, just above her shoulder and in the second one to the left in-line with her lips - the fine strands of hair are sharper in the second shot, which suggests there is more resolution in the original shot - even though you resized to match size.

    The other comment that doesn't sway my guess, is that the first shot is less neutral in colour balance - it seems to have a slightly greenish tinge when compared to the second one.

    Well, you are correct in your decision regardless of your reasoning. :)

    for me it was slightly more sharpness, and the eye was a tad better in focus (either due to eye-AF, manual punch in focus, or just because mirrorless = no AF fine tune needed)
    Noise pattern was slightly tighter to thanks to the downsizing
