Kim is that because of a better sensor, better lens , better quality control or some combo of those? (saying that F770-900 are better than the F550.)

It is an empirical observation. The F770 is slightly better than the F550 in IQ, but much better in reach and ergonomics. The F900 seems better again than the F770 in ergonomics (menus) and of course in AF.

The sensor is new, and my hack proved that it has very difference color response from that of the earlier models ... so there could certainly be a reason why it has so much better saturation, but it could also simply be an improved JPEG engine. Lots of possibilities.

What is nice is how well these respond in RAW now. But of course Adobe have also fixed the RAW engine in LR4.4 for the older models, so EXR is now more the bomb than ever
