200 ISO…

400 ISO…

800 ISO. There’s a hint of mid-tone noise, but only just.

Still no serious problems at 3200 ISO. The noise is there, but it’s smooth and well controlled.

Noise is quite visible at 6400 but it looks like film grain. Tonal gradients are still smooth there’s still plenty of detail.

Contrast is fading at 12,800 ISO, but this is far from hopeless.

This is the full frame at 12,800 ISO.
