This a comment for this page on the website
"This was to be expected as the sensor of the A77 accommodates 50% more pixels in the same surface. So, as the A77 pixels are smaller, they catch less light, giving the A77 a lower Lowlight score." Huh? Doesn't the dxomark testing procedure account for this by normalizing results to a given print size? Surely the difference has more to do with the SLT design of the A77. This statement perpetuates the more-megapixels-equals-more-noise myth, a myth that dxomark itself debunks with an excellent article.

You are completely right.
This mistake threaded its way through our proof reading process. We corrected the review.
Thanks a lot for pointing it out.
