I like high mp bodies so I can crop and still have a good image left, and at low ISO's, the Sony sensor is good. that's assuming that I'm willing to buy a $5,000 Zeiss lens that can produce those results. In any event, with a ordinary lens, the results will be better than with a low mp sensor.
Cameras with high mp Sony sensors (at least, the A7r) also produce great results with a $900 Sony/Zeiss 55mm 1.8 lens and (inter al.) a wide range of Canon lenses, including such relative bargains as the 85mm 1.8, 100mmL and the ultra-cheap 40mm pancake. To the extent you meant to include a "not" in the third sentence, the photos I've taken with an "ordinary lens" (assuming you mean something less exalted than a $5000 Zeiss) don't look worse via my A7r than they do via my 6D & 5DIII. To the extent you didn't, "at least as good" might be safer than "better than", but I'm not really sure. These are just impressions I've formed by using them, though, rather than through comparisons performed under controlled conditions. Are there such tests showing otherwise?
