DPR has added D600 studio image to their database for us to compare different cameras. When I looked the RAW up to ISO3200, I don't really see meaningful difference between D600, 5D3, D800 and A900. These new generation sensors might be one stop better than A900 in therms of high ISO. Did I miss anything?

Not better, because of the limits of the laws of physics?

Reason why I suggested a dedicated sensor for low ISO here:

Purpose built astrophotography sensors are within reach of the current Exmors, so there's not much to win (in terms of photons for a single exposure time), regardless of design.

Thanks. Yes you right (and I did not know).

But why not a FF sensor with the backlit design?

Sony told «it was not necessary according to the large surface of photodiodes in the DSLR world » , so... I'm not sure at all about this argument
