Re: A57 or A65 for lowlight wildlife?

Chroma noise removal isn't lossless.

Nor is shadow detail sharpening. The amount of information in the image remains the same when PP is used to optimize the image.

The discrepancy is not irrelevant for all needs.

Oh, I'm sure there are corner cases where the Pentax approach of heavy in sensor NR would be preferable. I can't think of any, and I doubt you can either, but I'm sure they exist.

They're few and far enough in between that they can be safely ignored though. What matters is information content, not the details of its distribution. Modern cameras are similar enough in this that it takes pixel peeping to even see the choices made in the sensor processing.

Nothing else in your long diatribe is relevant.

In other words, you're out of your depth. Thank you for implicitly admitting I am correct.

The personal snark is typical of your style, but also similarly irrelevant.

Thank you.

The A65 produces more chroma noise at high ISO.

Yup. And its images contain the exact same amount of signal as the A57 images.

Therefore there is no practical difference. None at all.

Thanks for FINALLY (if only implicitly) admitting this.
