Noise ...

This is a very rough impression from about 50 shots, only a dozen or so in dim interiors with high ISO values.

If I use the Canon 20D, a camera I'm very familiar with, as a benchmark, I would say the Sony images are equal to the 20D up to 1600 ISO. At 3200 perhaps the Canon is just the slightest bit ahead. But the remarkable thing is the Sony 6400 ISO images are just about the same as the 3200 ones.

I did a sequence of images of the same interior scene at 1600/3200/6400. When I bring them up on the screen at normal viewing (not 100 percent, but full screen on a 20inch monitor) it's relatively easy to see which is the 1600 one. To tell the other two apart I have to look at the EXIF info. That's impressive.
