Summary

Our Score:

9

Over the next few pages we show a range of test shots. On this page the full size image at the minimum and maximum ISO settings have been reduced to let you see the full image, and a series of full resolution crops have taken from original images at a range of ISO settings to show the overall image quality. These were shot in Raw mode and then converted using Adobe Camera Raw, with 25 percent chroma noise reduction.

----

This is the full frame at 100 ISO.

----

Not too surprisingly, flawless image quality at 100 ISO.

----

No noticeable difference at 200 ISO.

----

there is a little noise grain showing through at 400 ISO, but it's not enough to cause a problem.

----

Slightly more texture at 800 ISO, but the effect is not dissimilar to film grain.

----

There's a little colour noise creeping in at 1600 ISO, but overall quality is still good.

----

Noise is now very visible at 3200 ISO.

----

Image quality at 6400 ISO is not as good as some rivals, notably the Canon EOS 5D MkII.

----

This is the full frame at 6400 ISO.
