You must have shot with the A77 and its competitors for quite a while, as it appears that your expertise in the noise characteristics of the A77 and other cameras are, as you imply, authoritative. Can you tell us what tests you ran and under what conditions. I am curious to see what methodology you came up with to be able to say, with certitude, that the A77 lost an f stop due to the mirror.

Obviously he hasn't done that but is just blowing smoke confident that his unscientific observations are the absolute truth.

Since SLT uses only a third stop of light for AF, it would put it far behind in that area (conpared to SLRs) as well.

You know, SLRs magically create more light (100% to view finder, enough to the metering module and still have left over light to do more than 30% to AF module).
