That is your hypothesis. I have another: the sensor is more sensitive to begin with.

Amusing theory given that they use the same sensor.  The a57 just gives up 1/3 to 1/2 stop due to their puzzling use a old technology called a Translucent Mirror.  It is possible to have an EVF without this loss (such as Olympus and Panasonic do).  I don't understand what advantage Sony thinks they get with this approach.  The viewfinder in the gh2, for example, compares favorably to the Sony ones I have seen.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.

End of day, the end results aren't much apart. Much less than you suggest based on your belief that it must be bad because "light is taken away". But it won't matter what anyone says. Beliefs isn't something that anyone can influence.
