Jon, I'm rather intrigued how you know the Sony 24 Mp sensor is a "mushy mess".

You might be right or even may be right; I'm trying to get more info on this sensor before buying any of its hosts.

Just looking at the Sony a77 24MP samples at Imaging resource and others on the net shows me a loss of detail (looks painterly), at > 800 ISO due to heavy handed image processing trying to deal with the small photo sites light gathering capability. The noise reduction just wipes out the details that can easily be found in images from the Sony 16MP sensor. We shall see what Nikon can do to fix this, but I am not encouraged by what I have seen so far from Sony.

I will be happy to be proven wrong however, and will wait for DPR to review the a77 production camera before commenting further on the mushy detail seen so far from the Sony 24MP sensor.

Best regards,
