images: A900 vs A99 RAW high ISO comparison
Nov 9, 2012

I had my A99 now for 3 days, and I must say that I like it a lot. Mostly for its EVF, faster AF, lighter weight, and video capability, when compared to my A900. Especially the EVF I prefer so much more over an OVF. It's great to be able to tweak your exposure before you actually take the picture.

But also in terms of IQ the A99 is a step up. This is most apparent at high ISO. See below two comparisons of 100% crops. Shot at ISO 6400 and with the same lens.

A900 is on the left, A99 on the right.

All processed in LR 4.2. I'd say that the A99 looks much better.
