I can say that I also own a Cybershot Sony 14 MP P&S camera, and it also generates about 5MB JPEG files.

I'm very happy with the camera, because if Sony can give A65 and A77 an super-extra-fine JPEG setting in agreement with a 24MP camera in the next few fw updates, we'll be able to use the potential of this sensor with much less effort.

The A77 has an extra fine setting that yields files of around 14mb whereas the A65 is around half that at about 7 (not routinely 5mb).

Using the dpreview comparison tool the larger A77 files are probably a little better but it is hard to tell.

However as I point out here:

The Canon 7D is doing even worse then either camera so I think there is something in the original posters idea the criticism is somewhat unfair.

I am sure there are better high ISO cameras than a Canon 7D but it doesn't seem to get the slagging off for poor jpegs the Sony cameras do.
