">this page on the website</a></div>I posted something similar on the A65 page, but I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on why, given both are using the same sensor, that the A77 scores 801 in high-ISO while the A65 only scores 717. I understand why the A77 might score higher overall due to the lower ISO range, but not why it would be better in low light.
Looking at the NEX-5N vs the NEX-7, the high-ISO performance difference isn't as great (1079 for the 5N vs 1016 for the 7) and they are using sensors with significantly different resolutions.
So why such a big difference in high ISO for the A65 vs A77?
