New A99 tests. A99 on par with all Nikon FF cameras.

Techradar posted the A99 hands-on review. And the most interesting part is the comparison with the Nikon D600, Nikon D800 and Canon 5DmarkII. You can see it here. Let’s look at the RAW files:
1) Signal to noise ratio: The A99 is on par with the Nikon D600 while the Canon has an edge from ISO 3.200 towards.
2) Dynamic range. The A99 isn’t the best at ISO 50-100 but form 200 ISO towards it’s on top with the D700 and 5DmarkII.
Overall it looks like the A99 and D600 are damn close in their performance. Certainly the A99 holds up well with the best in this class. Now le’t see if the RX1 can beat them all! Can’t wait to see these results on techaradar soon.

New RX1 reviews:
The well known Japanese website DC.watch (translation here) posted a full Sony RX1 test. They also did a small comparison with the Leica M9 and Olympus E-M5. And because google translation tool doens’t the job very well I can’t  understand their conclusion :)
Also Yodbashi (translation here) posted a new RX1 shooting report. Check it out because some pics are amazing!
Darwinfish posted a short RX1 two low light video on youtube (and here is the second video). You can also see a first amateurish unboxing AF test. The sickest video has been shot by Philip Bloom -> Sorry for the bad joke Philip :)
