EDIT, I just added one from the NEX 7 at 6400. same settings Carl Ziess 24mm 1.8
The NEX is pretty good if you ask me.

Hmm, nice comparison.
I would have guessed the A850 still would have been better at high ISO.
Interesting differences in colour ... which is more accurate ?

The a850. I am surprised it dropped that much a 6400 as well. The files for the a850 a much richer. I am also not using a high end CZ on the a850.

I look at it the other way around. The NEX and a77 are hangin tough with a full frame camera. I expected what I see with the a850, 6400 is as high as it goes anyway.. I would love to see some Canon and Nikon pictures posted. I am sure the D7000 will out do these but would still like to see some examples. Come on let's see what kind of coffee you drink.

The nex at 6400 is pretty impressive. The noise control seems really nice. The 850 does seem to handle noise better then the a77 as I would expect.

The A850 looks very good I have to say, the A77 looks like complete trash in comparison at ISO3200 It's funny though the A850 seems to completely fall apart at ISO 6400 which is strange..

I'm assuming these were taken in RAW and not Jpeeg aswell?

But the A850 is not made for high iso but i would have it over the other 2

The NEX7 is incredible at 6400 ISO, that would give the 5dmk2 a good run for its money

It's not all about the high ISO. How often do shoot in 6400?
a850 and a900 IQ in low ISO is superior to 5DmkII. But NEX-7 and a77 has many useful features that the a850 doesn't have.

DxOMark - Compare cameras side by side

That's weird. Looks to me like the low ISO IQ is roughly the same, and the high ISO noise handling is significantly better on the 5D2.

Have you taken any photos this year yet? :lol: Or are you still too 'busy' looking at test charts?

The score "79" that you are seeing is an overall IQ. The low ISO IQ is better in a900/a850, high ISO IQ is better in 5DmkII
