DxOmark today published their sensor tests for the A77 SLT camera, which has the same 24MP sensor as the NEX-7. According to the DxO data, the A77/NEX-7 sensor has essentially no deficiencies when compared to the latest 16MP Sony sensors, upping the resolution while maintaining parity or better in signal/noise, dynamic range, tonal range, and color sensitivity! Quite an impressive accomplishment from Sony.
I suspect that all the negative talk about A77/NEX-7 low light high ISO performance will be squashed when these cameras are out in photographers' hands and have RAW file support by Lightroom and other popular processing applications.
