Re: DxOMark hints at upcoming Sony A99 score
In reply to JohnBee, Dec 12, 2012

First, I believe the staement was not so much a "typo" as a slip: as pointed out above, the D600 has a better DR score than the Pentax. But I do believe they have tested the A99, that it did very well, and that it will have one of the best overall scores ever, 90 or better.

As for how they test, responding to Remylebleau's question, the "Sports," or high iso noise test is not done at iso100, but is the highest iso at which the sensor.camera still retains an image of a certain quality. The other tests measure aspects of photography most important to landscape or portrait photography, which are are fields in which iso100 or thereabouts is used most of the time.
