Abstract: We put AdS/CFT dualities involving probe branes to a precision test. On the holographic side we use a new class of supersymmetric D7-brane embeddings into AdS5×S5, which allow to describe N=4 SYM coupled to massive N=2 supersymmetric flavors on S4. With these embeddings we can compare holographic results to a field theory analysis of the free energy using supersymmetric localization.
