With all due respect, if any credible reviewer uses other's data it needs not only to be referenced, but also come with a disclaimer if it has not been applied by the reviewer.
In Thom's somewhat ambivalent comments on the A7r he left me with the feeling (since no reference to his own analysis was made) that he accepted it blindly.
Further, the review seems to imply little work was done with A7r's RAW images.
Okay, well, to me it sounded like he had worked with it to figure it all out, but didn't have anything in particular he wanted to post, and anyway, he was posting a review of the cameras, not a technical examination.
Regarding your earlier comment about my statement on Nikon's D800E, my rebuttal will be somewhat defensive
Nikon's use of the sensor is three years old and Sony has made improvements since then. These changes still require time to prove if they are indeed of benefit. However DXO's tests seem to show that it is.
DXO's sensor test show that the D800E beat the A7r on 3 of 4 criteria, and tied it on the last... I think this probably has a lot to do with why Nikon hasn't released anything new. On top of this, Nikon can't be enjoying the fact that their sensor partner is a camera competitor, so they are probably working overtime on some other strategy for the future.
