Very interesting, especially when comparing shadow areas. The A99 performs clearly more than one stop better than the A850, supposed that light level is the same for both exposures.

Note also that A850 ISO 6400 exposure is 1/800 sec at f:8 and A99 ISO 12800 is 1/2000 sec at f:8, which is about 1.3 stop less light to the sensor - plus the translucent mirror!


It does look good to me too.  If I was just looking for the highest ISO camera I would've picked up the Nikon D3S.  But really all I need is clean ISO 6400.  One stop better (and maybe a little bit more) than my A-850 will be just fine for me.  What it tells me is that Sony will be competitive with Canikon.  And the future will be with Sony (e-mount, a-mount or whatever else they give us) and I'll still be able to use the 135 F1.8.
