D300 vs A700

Looking at the results Nikon D300 and Sony A700 deliver from the same
sensor, it's pretty obvious who's getting the preferential treatment
from the sensors group.

I think that's going to far. What I see is that Sony's design team
doesn't yet know how to optimize conversion in camera.

Do you have any data to support that view?

This test found a lot more read noise with the A700 than even the 30D:

"And as far as dark noise is concerned you are better off shooting the
Canon EOS 30D at ISO 800 rather then the A700 at any ISO above 100!"

And the 40D and D300 have less read noise than the 30D.

Just my two oere
