Isogenies and dimensions

Let $f: \mathbb{C}^g/L\to\mathbb{C}^{g'}/L'$ be an isogeny of complex tori, i.e. a surjective Lie group morphism with finite kernel.

Is it obvious that $g\ge g'$ ?

It is easy to show that $f$ is induced by a linear map $\mathbb{C}^g\to\mathbb{C}^{g'}$ that is injective, but I cannot see why this map should be an isomorphism. A surjective morphism of Lie group is not necessarily a submersion, right ?

Do you mean the linear map $\mathbb C^g \to \mathbb C^{g'}$ is surjective? – Eric O. Korman Apr 10 '14 at 19:34
Or is your question if $g = g'$? – Eric O. Korman Apr 10 '14 at 19:39
$g=g'$, $g\ge g'$ or the linear map is surjective are equivalent, since it is injective. – Klaus Apr 10 '14 at 19:49

In general, any Lie group homomorphism whose kernel is a discrete subgroup of the center is a normal covering. In particular it is a local isomorphism so in your case $g = g'$. For a proof, see proposition 1.19 of http://www.math.upenn.edu/~wziller/math650/LieGroupsReps.pdf.
