Does the Canon 650D perform better than the 600D under low light conditions? I know that it has a newer processor, but how much difference does this make in night time photos? Can ISO speed for example be pushed higher without introducing extra noise? Also, is image quality any better when using the same lens?

I'm sure I'll get blasted for this, and I would expect the 650D to do the same if not a tiny bit better in low light conditions. Also the AF on the 650D is probably better in low light. But looking at the image comparometer tool in the dpreview tests, to my eyes the 600D actually looks a bit better in both JPG and RAW up to 6400 ISO.

I agree with Midwest, the 650D is a big technological leap, because it added phase detect focus, to the main sensor without substantially hurting high ISO performance.

I thought that possibly the addition of phase detect to the sensor might have caused some slight other effect which made the images a touch noisier. But the difference in any case (if there is one) is very small indeed and the value of the PD on the sensor far outweighs it.
