Re: First Day with my new A77

I just wish people just didn't compare quality through their screens all the time (unless they shoot for web and TV) and tried comparing actual prints. How many here have done side by side comparisons of a 16mp noise free image vs a 24mp similar image with a small amount of ISO noise?

I am fortunate and I got an Epson Stylus Pro 7800 (A1 sheets or roll) for free from my job. Not everyone has a printer of this size at home, but I strongly suggest people to send some files with different resolution, noise levels and varying degree of sharpening to a print shop and see for themselves.

I have the Epson 7880 (A1 also). I cannot compare 16Mp vs 24Mp because I do not have any 16Mp camera. But I can compare 24Mp from my FF A850 and 24Mp from my APS-C A77... And when it comes to hi ISOs (say 800-1600), the A850 delivers much better results. I tend to consider that images above 1600 ISO from the A77 are totally unusable.
