Re: Accurately comparing FF vs APS-C sensor performance? An open discussion.

Hi,

just thinking that one of the main problems in your comparison may be that you're trying to compare sensor sizes and their behaviour in the overall system of image taking. However this ends comparing camera models - an older A77 to a newer A99 with not only different sensor generations but also all the other processing and image taking tech. My feeling is that such a comparsion APS-C vs. FF would make more sense only if there were an A99 FF and an "A99c" with an APS-C sensor of the same generation, both in bodies with essentially the same processing tech and both released at the same time. If not, not only the evolution from one to the next sensor and camera generation plays an important role but also the model type with the 7-line generally showing some stripped down tech in comparison to the 9er models.
