Going With The Flow

I have been trying out the Sony Nex-7 camera for some time now. It is interesting that this is the same camera that Trey Radcliff ( recently reviewed and stated he was switching to, dumping is D800.

My experience has been a bit different. While I love the small size and portability of the Nex-7 and the image quality is excellent, it is still not to the amazing quality of the D800. The main differences I notice are in the noise (Nex-7 at ISO 100 is about the same as the D800 at ISO 400) and dynamic range (the Nex-7 is 13.4 stops vs. the D800 at 14.4 stops). The dynamic range of the Sony is better that any of Canon's cameras including the 5D mark III but I have gotten used to the amazing 14.4 stops of the D800 and the new possibilities this opens up.
