What nonsense are you spouting? The K50 has vastly superior high ISO performance.

Its fine ine to prefer the Sony for many reasons. But blind dishonest fanboy bias is just silly.

Look at the dxomark scores of each.

The K50 with 18-55 lens is $697 at B&H while the A58 with 18-55 is $448 so there is a major price difference. I'm sure the K50 is a better camera and maybe just as good a value.

As far as high iso, I know the K50 scores better than the A58 on DXO but in the area that really matters, how it looks, there isn't much difference. When you compare the two at iso 6400 on the IR comparator the K50 looks better in some ways while the A58 looks better in others. The gray swatch looks better with the K50 while the Red swatch looks much better with the A58. I'd say overall it's a tossup. All in all though I think high iso performance is only about 5% of a cameras worth

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
