Canon vs. Sony

So, let me start this buy saying I am in love with my Sony dslr. I have been a Sony shooter for quite some time and really like a lot of things that Sony has to offer.
Sony however does not offer the ability to shoot tethered to my laptop unless I buy the $2300 full frame camera. Yeah, no.
I need to be able to shoot tethered so I did a bit of research. My number one need beyond the ability to shoot tethered was cost. I have thousands of dollars into my Sony. I planned to still use it as my main camera and buy a cheap Canon to shoot those things I need to shoot tethered.
I ended up settling on a Canon eos XSi. Cheap, a lot of megapixels, tethered software, cheap, cheap.
We had an old lens lying around here off our old Canon film slr. Another reason to choose Canon.

Yesterday afternoon I decided to do a side by side comparison. Sony vs Canon. I knew my Sony was going to win. I mean I was giving it the unfair advantage of my 1.8 50 mm lens. I like to refer to that lens as my lover. I armed the Canon with the kit lens. A 3.5-5.6 18-55 mm. I really wanted my Sony to win. I put them both on the macro setting and started shooting away. Here is the best shot both of them took. Keep in mind it is the same exact flower.
You failed me Sony, you failed me.

Wait, which one is which? Cannon on top? This is why I'm no professional!

Wow! The cheap, cheap, cheap camera took that shot?

If I ever have any money again, I'm going to remember that!

I have the Canon Rebel xti and love it. I'm thinking that took the bottom picture?

You are right Kathy. The Canon took the bottom pic.

I've been shooting Canon for more then a few years now. My main camera is a 30D and when I borrow the Mrs. point and shoot, it too is a Canon. Neat experiment. I have the 1.8 50mm Canon lens if you ever want to try it out and find yourself in this neck of the woods :)

The first photo is clearer and in my opinion that would be the better camera. Which one was it?
