The Sony Alpha 700 is the latest SLR to fall under the spotlight at DP Review, with their conclusions generally being favorable. They praised the image quality and the low noise, as well as the color that the camera captured. General performance and handling were also praised, but they were less impressed with the RAW shooting (the Alpha 700 applies noise reduction before it save the RAW image, which kind of defeats the point of shooting in RAW) and the ISO range; they claim that the sensor has a base sensitivity of 200 ISO, which means that running it at 100 ISO isn’t going to give you the best image quality.
