A500 versus A550 IR Samples here

These were taken with a screen capture program from the IR compare image area. They are ISO 800 samples. It appears from this that the A500 is significantly better regarding the red channel issue at lower ISOs like ISO 800. At higher ISOs like 3200 and 6400 both the A500 and A550 do end up wiping out the red channel. Both cameras appear to be somewhat better using the NR2 option not shown here. Both cameras are much better if one shoots in RAW. From the IR samples it does appear that the A500 produces better JPEG images. It's just a darn shame that Sony didn't offer a lower NR/noNR option with these cameras because if you go by the RAW images both of these cameras are much more competitive at higher ISOs.
