Noise comparison between Sony a77 and NEX-5n - the jpg version

Below is a comparison of the Sony a77 and NEX-5n cameras using the same 30mm f/2.8 a-mount lens. The lens was fitted to the 5n using the translucent mirror adapter. All images are out of camera jpgs. completely unaltered.

N.B. The a77 images were all taken using the very latest firmware v1.04.
