Hi Michael, interesting that you find the test snobbish, I wouldn't thought of that reaction :-)
I'm very aware that FS 100 and F3 have the same sensor, that was why I was quite surprised myself that the FS 100 were doing better in the tests we did. But the signal processing in the two cameras are different, and this can make a lot of difference. For instance, the FS100 has equal to ISO 800 at 0 dB gain, and the F3 has 400, so the engineers at Sony has obviously taken some different choices on these two cameras when it comes to what happens after the sensor. That is also obvious from the specs, FS100 has 8 bit signal processing, while F3 has 10 bit.
