Is that so, why does Sony clame it than ? IF there is really NO improvement of the High ISO performance compared to the old A77, and so far it seems that way from the few samples seen so far, than it's shame for Sony, it was en is the real weak point of the old A77, if Sony did nothing to improve that, many will be disappointed en will not buy the camera, I say IF that is really confirmed officially, we have to wait a little longer for more samples any way.

Sony's claims are probably true. They never said it would make a visible difference. The fact is I just don't understand where you high iso pixel peepers come from. Do you ever go out and take real photos or do you take test shots in dark environments and examine them at 100%? Is high iso quality the only thing that matters to you for bragging rights or something? Can't you appreciate the other improvements that have been made? This high iso obsession makes no sense to me at all.

Look at the picture, not the pixels
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.
