Re: D300 vs A700

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

I don't believe what I'm seeing of Sony's in camera demosaic and processing is particularly due to read noise. I've seen demosaics of systems with high read noise (and other issues) that produced excellent images. One of the issues that has always been around with digital is matching what you do with the data to the type of data you're getting. Note how much the compact cameras have improved with very noisy data streams.

Also, I'd caution people to read too much into all these isolation tests. While they reveal some attribute of the underlying system, that's not always relevant to the final image. Put another way, your doctor doesn't take your blood pressure and decide you have heart disease.
