D3x and A900 resolution figures comparable?

Thanks for your reply. <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

One question from me. What RAW-converter do you usually use for testing Sony/Minolta cameras and lenses?


Various. :-)

A900/A850: CaptureOne 5

A700: LR 1.3

NEX-5: Sony Converter

You may, of course, ask why. Usually we evaluate the different options at the time a system emerges and choose the "best" one regardless of the software brand.

Please note that e.g.






will all give you different results because of algorithm fine-tuning over time (and even within major versions) so sticking just to a manufacturer is an absolutely meaningless approach. It is also impossible to stick to -say- ACR 5 and converter everthing via DNG because the different DNG converters will already alter the RAWs.

At the end there is only one conclusion - things are simply not cross-test-system comparable. Neither here not at any other review site (although most of the other sites will not mention this as openly).
