Is the jpeg engine a work in progress ? The few images i examined, horse riding girl and jack daniels, are overcooked. So many artifacts in the files. I can't believe these are original jpegs out of the camera. If so then Sony needs to do some work. The face from the girl with the hat on the horse is beyond anything natural (phone look on 100%) so is the jeans from the daniels guy.

There needs to be an examination what went wrong with these files..overcooking in the camera or in PP (compresion, NR, sharpening).

I'm not convinced these are representative for the camera.

Not only the Canon 6D has a AF down to -3 EV also the Pentax K-5II/IIs.
Maybe others also, who knows?
So in the conclusion this is false information.

Thanks for the review, always a pleasure to read.
