I was just reading that if you shoot the A900 @12mpx full frame the noise issues are gone

Re: do i keep the alpha 900?

i'm still unsure whether or not to keep the alpha 900. i do alot of night photography, sunsets, i also like taking pictures when the sun is eclipsing a buliding or a tree. my question is am i better of with a nikon d700 or keeping the alpha 900 and carl zeiss lens. i just feel the alpha 900 is a little bit noisy, in fact alot noisy. at the moment i cant post process because i'm still saving up for a laptop and software.

Have you used the A900 for this as yet? 

From the reviews and test I've seen, the A900 is excellent at low to mid ISO, and only start to fall behind Canikon at around 800. 

Do you have access to another computer? Download software on a 30day trial to see if it works for you.

Do you have the long exposure NR turned off?  I believe it is suggested for the A700 and A900 RAW files, or is that the High ISO NR?

Sony A700, Dynax 7D+VC-7D, Dynax 7,Tamron 17-50 f/2.8, Minolta 50mm f/1.7, Sony 70-200 G SSM, Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DG, Sigma 105mm 2.8 EX Macro, 5600HSD, Minolta 5400hs, Sigma EF-500 DG, Bowens 250w head kit, Interfit 300w kit

really is that true, i'm gonna turn down my camera to 12mp and see if it makes a difference. anyway i think i am a sont alpha 900 convert. i've just seen some really good work on the alpha 900. i think i'll keep my alpha. i was gonna take it back and get a nikon d700, but now i dont think i will. i like to photo sunsets and silliouettes. i like alot of colour and i think the sony is good in that area. i have seen this from my own work with the sony.
