I've been hearing that the Sony A580 is THE best Crop Sensor in the Sony Line Up. Is this true? I have The Sony A550, is it that much better to warrant a upgrade?

Are you comparing pixels by pixel, or total sensor area? The latter is relevant for real world photography. If you are talking of noise level, then pixel size doesn't matter, says sensor designers.

I'm comparing noise levels only.. From everything I've read, yes, I said Read, and examples I've seen...Sony's best, the A99 doesn't come close to a Nikon D700 or D3 when it comes to Low noise at high ISO settings...Perhaps I've been misled by false Web sites.. Wouldn't be the first time. but, I do appreciate your input.
