Sony DSLR-A380 (RAW) vs. Canon EOS 500D (RAW)

Sony DSLR-A380 (RAW)
Canon EOS 500D (RAW)
4.2 MB JPEG (4592 x 3056)
4.2MB JPEG (4752 x 3168)

On both cameras the differences between the RAW and default JPEG results are visible but not dramatic. Sharpening and color response have been slightly evened out by the ACR processing but the Canon still shows a small amount of extra detail and an overall sharper image.
