I was surprised by my score and Canon's poor showing. Canon-18, Nikon-26, Sony-28. Currently shoot Sony, but used to shoot Canon and generally always preferred Canon color science but couldn't stand the DR of their sensors. Sony has clearly come a long way. I still shoot the original A99; Though I am very pleased with the final results from its files, they require a lot of processing to nail down pleasing colors but the end result is better than the end results that I got from my Canons.

Chris2210: I think that in some cases ambient conditions which improved contrast influenced my decisions. I tried to make more or less instantaneous choices, but sometimes it was warmth of skin colour, sometimes a balance of that with reasonable contrast.

My results were a surprise to me because I expected Canon, generally known for warmer skin tones to come out on top, but it was clear last for me [@17pt] while Nikon and Sony almost tied on 28 and 27, respectively. What does this prove? Not sure.

I'd process from RAW myself in any case and as I'm brand-neutral generally I'd probably be more inclined to purchase on other features/price offer. The jpeg engine means next to nowt.

I came up with similar scores and was also surprised. Canon-18, Nikon-26, Sony-28. Currently shoot Sony, but used to shoot Canon and generally always preferred Canon color science but couldn't stand the DR of their sensors. Sony has clearly come a long way. I still shoot the original A99; Though I am very pleased with the final results from its files, they require a lot of processing to nail down pleasing colors but the end result is better than the end results that I got from my previous Canon cameras.

Swerky: I've been a landscape hobbyist for the longest time. Never felt the need for a flash. Even when I introduced street photography, I could get away with a large aperture lens in low light. Add to that walking the streets with a dslr and a flash on top isn't the ideal setup. It is only when I started shooting indoors that I really felt the need for a flash. But I'd recommend from the start to get a good one. Meaning one that bounce tilts in portrait and landscape. Small ones can only be bounced in landscape and that limiation can be felt quickly.

I actually think fill in flash can do wonders for street photography especially on sunny days. Shop around and you would be surprised at the capability and small footprint of some of these flashes from companies like Neewer. The one I have takes 2 AA batteries, is rechargeable by USB, swivels both vertically and horizontally, has TTL, and is so small it hardly takes up any space in my bag or on camera.

This will make a perfect video lens on a crop sensor. Really looking forward to its release (hopefully at a reasonable price).
