I see it now, but I regret it.  I wish I would have missed that shot, though.  Noise is pretty darn ugly, and no details.   Even at ISO 2500 (which is a a case of low-light scene), it is pretty ugly, and little details.  I will need to look at the raw (but I don't have CS6 yet, but I will).

I really can't comprehend how such poor photos can be released to promote a new camera.  Are the photographers blind?

So you were looking for OOC jpegs then? I'm sure there are a lot of people that care, but personally, I only look at RAW results.

At least it shows that the jpg engine and noise reduction are pretty poor.  The noise pattern (i.e., cracks) is simply dreadful.   Yes, the RAW files will hopefully look better, but by which amount?

At ISO 3200, its cousin D600 seems to perform much better (check aarif's new photos taken with the D600, it is quite impressive).  Crazy enough, the D600 and a99 share the same sensor.

You're comparing heavily downsampled processed RAW shots with OOC jpegs in different conditions. Hard to take seriously.

Check this sample at full res. taken with the D600 at ISO 6400 from dpreview


To me, this is much cleaner (make sure to check the poorly lit areas in the photo) that anything I have seen with the a99 at ISO 3200.

Measurebators are out of my world, photography is not about babbling behind a computer... but rather being out of your home, shoot and share photographs with other people. Shoot and Share...Thanks.
