Simon97: I agree with DPR's assessment. Shoot this thing RAW to get the 24mp resolution expected.
Noise at higher ISOs is a disappointment. Low noise at high ISO is part of the attraction of larger sensors. Compared the other cameras RAW noise is two stops worse and nearly 3 stops vs. the K5. The Sony 16mp sensor seems to be the current APS-C champ. This camera is a victim of the megapixel race. RIP
Hi, I second confusedSLR's question. Can someone please answer whether reducing the megapixel setting on the A65 would result in better quality at higher ISOs and mitigate the 24MP problem?
