    olympus e-500 i was getting spoiled by out of camera sharp images.

    the sony seems perfect, sharpness, color, contrast and noise
    Strange through, there the D70 delivers very sharp pictures due to its aggresive in-camera processing, much sharper than anything else. The other Nikons you have probably are quite soft.
    Why do you have so many DSLRs?
    Canon EOS 350D, Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 macro, Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 DC EX, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM, Tokina AT-X124 Pro 12-24mm F4, Soligor 1.7x C/D4 DG Teleconvertor, Manfrotto 724B tripod, Canon Powershot S30

    Lightbulb Iso rating

    Do not forget 1 thing when comparing "iso rated" pictures between brands:

    Iso Sony a100: iso 100 selected = 160 measured, 200 s = 320 meas, 400 = 640, 800 = 1280 and 1600 selected = 2500 iso real!

    Iso EOS 30D: iso 100 selected = 125 measured, etc

    Iso Nikon D200; iso 100 = iso 100

    This is impossible on the a100 and on most SLR (except on Canon EOS30D, Olympus E330 and Panasonic L1).

    This is due to the fact that the light goes through the lens on a mirror that reflects the image, and enables you to use the ocular. When you shoot, the mirror goes up and let the light reach the sensor.

    The Panasonic new sensor on E330 and L1 (same sensor) doesn't warm up. So it's possible to let the light on, mirror up, and link it to the screen. Even for a long time.

    Canon is limited to +/- 20seconds (sensor is protected but warms up).

    got my a100 today

    So far I'm really loving this camera. I do a lot of low light work and the "steady shot" feature has opened up a whole new world. This camera is well worth the money spent. Here is an example of what would usually be a bit blurry, but not with the Sony.
