    DPR just did a re-test of the Sony A700 v4 against the other cameras. Holds its own very well against the D300 with both cameras taking a different approach to NR.

    better NR does not equal hi iso performance. put better NR on the d300 via software and you;re back to where you started. nikon were in this position a couple of years ago, you guys just have to sit tight and wait for sony to get it together.

    Coming from Contax with Carl Zeiss lenses and never having used positive or negative film above 800, and usually considerably lower, and now using A900 + CZ 24-70, this guy thinks Sony has already got it together quite nicely, thank you

    Laydros 'Jason' resist the urge, stay with us, Hold firm with Sony, it's kind of fun fighting a uphill battle! And don't you love when your out somewhere with other people shooting and you have to go, "well no, it's not a Nikon it's a Sony, no really, remember Minolta...."

    Well I blame it on my mother she was born and raised in Northern Ireland ( it is a different country, part of the U.K.) so being half Irish I have been blessed with the gift of gab, story telling, and a very dry sense of humor. A fondness for dark cool beer, and the juice of the barley!

    congratulations, if it works for you then thats great and good luck to you with your nice setup. but i wasnt stating my opinion, i was stating a fact. sony is behind in the hi-iso game right now, just like nikon were a couple of years ago. end of discussion.
