a200 vs a580
Apr 17, 2011

Hello,

I know this is ridiculous to compare the two, but before I buy I had a question.

I currently own the a200, it was fine when I first bought it but I've grow as a photographer and its time to upgrade. Im not happy with the noise levels with higher iso settings in low light situations. Even at iso 800 I can see noise... if it maters I shoot in manual mode.

How much of an improvement is the a580 over the a200 with noise?

also.. I have been shooting in jpg (fine). Would shooting in RAW help with noise?

Thanks for your help.
