Well, i've done some quick tests with latest version of Sony IDC. Can't post images because of bandwidth limitations, but i'm seeing some noticeable noise when lifting shadows, and the 2000 and 2500 samples are VERY noisy... the 3200 and upper performance must be to cry for...

Frankly a bad performance for a FF sensor, even with SLT light-loss penalty i'm surprised Sony did this bad. I find quite comical that Nikon does much better with Sony sensors than Sony themselves...

Yes, I know the excuses: bad photographer, wait to final firmware, etc... but folks, let's be realistic, remember what happened with first a77 samples: the exact same thing and the same excuses, but reality was clear: Sony screwed up. One year later Sony screwed up, again.

What do you exactly compare to? And how?
