Re: D600 vs a99 .... why?

Well, I cannot agree with that.

I cannot imagine someone buying a camera such as the D600 or A99 using in-camera Jpeg processing.

And I do not think anyone could ever distinguish correctly processed RAW files from the A99 and the D600.

I think the reason is simple :
D600 has better IQ than a99 (esp in High ISO Jpeg)

so even if everything else "around" the IQ is better with a99, the main reason u buy a camera remains stronger on the D600 side. for cheaper price.

and it's not just that SLT means 1/3 IL less for the sensor. It's because Sony is just less good in image processing logic, and in JPEG processing.

I have an a700. It was released at the same time as the D300. Both use the exact same sensor. And yet D300 has better IQ & lower noise than a700, just because Nikon has better know how.
