But is there very a way to compare just the sensor alone? I mean most people trying to make a big deal about the sensor, yet nobody actually take the sensor out of the camera and do the real test with just the sensor alone. Yet they all claim it's the sensor this and that. Even the processor still have something to do with it, RAW file or not there is still some kind of processing between sensor and the memory card. Yet, they all claim to want to talk about sensor. Yes, it's practically impossible to separate the sensor from the rest of the camera, but that's why I question it. As far I'm concern it's about the result images and the images quality.
Obviously we are all talking about the output from the sensor including whatever processing goes on. What we are not talking about is the fps of the cameras or the AF of the camera. These have nothing to do with the image quality.
I just don't get it when in a thread regarding sensor quality that people have to interject things like "yeh, but how does it track focus."
