Sony’s blockbuster full-framer puts up top resolution numbers at ISO 100 but has some catchup to do in noise and color accuracy. Speedy AF and great ergonomics almost make us forget that it doesn’t have live view or pop-up flash.
What happens when an electronics behemoth jumps into DSLRs? In Sony's case, it pushes development into overdrive for a couple of years. Then it makes a full-frame 24.6MP CMOS sensor and steals the title of most megapixels in the 35mm format from Canon, which has held the title for as long as anyone can remember.
But a camera is more than just megapixels. And the Alpha 900 ($3,000, street, body only) packs a gorgeous viewfinder that covers the entire frame, plus real-world resolution greater than that of any camera we've tested.
