SLT A77 Firmware Update & Next 7
« on: December 01, 2011, 07:34:11 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
The firmware for the Sony SLT A77 was just upgraded and one of the alleged improvements is  better image quality.  Since the Sony NEX 7 uses the same sensor as that of the A77, is it safe to assume that Sony will apply the same update to the NEX 7?  If so will DXOLabs re-test the camera?

It's impressive to see the IQ of the tiny and convenient NEX-7 be so close to that of my Nikon D3X.

Firmware updates usually improve processings, not the quality of the RAW signal, thus they have no influence on DxOMark measurements.
