But the best evidence comes not from looking at comparables on DPR, bit from carefully controlled testing, such as DXO does. And their measurements show that the the &D, and even the much newer 70D, are marginally better (by less than a quarter stop) than the A77 in high-iso performance, but very much inferior in dynamic range and color depth--several stops inferior. Indeed, those two Canon cameras, one of them quite recent, have over-all sensor ratings at the A700 level.

The anti noise extremists would call it a huge difference if it was only 1/10 stop.

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
