DxOmark: The Sony A580 is much better than the Sony A55!!!


What we are posting now will definitely start a BIG discussion! Than according to DxOmark lab results the Sony A580 easily outperforms the translucent A55 brother! Color dept, Dynamic range and ISO performance are better on the classic DSLR Sony camera! De facto the A580 is as good as the Nikon D7000. It looks like you loose a bit of image quality when using a camera with translucent mirror. Let’s face it, difference is barely noticeable in real world pictures but Sony has to work to close the gap between the two technologies. Maybe that’s the reason why Sony has taken all that time to develop the A77 and A99 cameras. I am sure at the end we will say that it was worth to wait…at least I hope so :)
