The A99 is obviously going to struggle with a minimum of 1/3 stop of SLT light loss, so I expect that, but I can at least see If you look at the EXIF, the 5D3 at ISO6400 gives 1/800th f/8, the A99 1/1000th f/8, that's 25%

The D600 is even more disadvantaged there, 1/1250th @ ISO6400!

I think more info will come to light as the RAWs are dug into further, but I see no reason just yet to think the bottom line difference should ultimately end up being 1/3 stop difference with the A99 when apples to apples comparisons are done, unless Sony have totally messed up, since it does share the same sensor as the D600..

It almost appears as something is wrong with the tests. The 3DM3 at ISO12800 (1/1600) clearly beats the A99 at ISO6400 (1/1000).
