Sony's A99, sporting a new 24-megapixel full-frame sensor, also can't match the Nikon D800 in terms of detail at base ISO, as expected. The A99 shows more obvious sharpening artifacts, and the threads are not visible in the red leaf swatch.

At ISO 3,200, approaches continue to diverge. Luminance noise is more obvious in the Nikon D800's shadows, and flecks of chroma noise also appear in the mosaic image, yet the red swatch still has thread detail, whereas the Canon 5D3's more aggressive noise suppression continues to blur the leaves. On the other hand, the 5D Mark III's rendering of the mosaic image looks like it would print very well.

While the Sigma SD1 captures very good, clean detail for its spatial resolution thanks to its Foveon sensor, it doesn't rise to the level of detail seen in the Nikon D800, even at ISO 100.
