    Sony A55/A33 - Very well done!!!

    Now I pray that Pentax someday will give me something similar with lots of external controls to use with my small high quality DA Limited primes.

    I watched the promo video about the new Sony A55 and A33 ( http://www.infoborder.com/Digital_Ca...onySLT-A55.php ) and I am very satisfy!

    But for now: Great job Sony - thanks for going in new directions, this helps all photographers by putting pressure on all camera makers!

    Thanks for picking this up, Karl.

    SONY is definitely pricing itself well below the competition. It is amazing.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    That is the only thing they haven't improved on yet.

    an extract

    "As you can see from these images, it is only at ISO 800 that visible noise starts to creep into the A55's JPEG output, but not to the extent that it is problematic in normal-sized prints. Even at ISO 3200 the A55 is capable of producing very good image quality which is at least on a par with the best of the other cameras in its class. By ISO 12,800 image quality has dropped significantly but high-contrast detail remains impressively well-defined, making this setting genuinely useful, rather than for 'emergency use only'.

    We've also included an example of the A55's 'Multi-shot NR' ISO 25,600 mode, and as you can see, image quality is slightly higher using this function than it is at ISO 12,800. Of its competitors, the A55 offers the best performance in our measured noise tests, and it is interesting to see how much higher measured noise levels are from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2, which uses a smaller Four Thirds sensor.

    With noise reduction set to 'auto' (default) the Alpha 55 matches the NEX-5 noise performance until ISO 3200, beyond which it manages to produce slightly less chroma and gray noise, ultimately managing almost a 1EV improvement over the NEX's 14MP CMOS sensor. When both cameras are set to NR 'weak' the gap is narrower. The difference between the visual output of these two settings is subtle, to say the least, until the ISO is increased to 3200 and higher, at which point 'auto' gives smoother but slightly less detailed results."

    It don't sound that bad. I have to look at the size of the camera. I don't want one that is too small in my hand. Are these supposed to be the A700 replacements??


    Thanks
