THE BIG ISO WAR vs NEX5n and m4/3
Sep 20, 2011


I was just reading the new EPL3 review and looked at the RAW comparison thing.

I just compared the newest and highly regarded NEX5n sensor and the newest m4/3 sensor and compared it to our old NX10/NX100 sensor.

Here is what I saw:

I know it is always the big war regarding sensors, systems and high Iso.

And what I know so far is that so many people have been bashing on NX sensor since the start, claiming its Iso capabilities are so low...even worse than m4/3 and their smaller sensors.

Well...regarding those results...and despite the old age of the current NX sensors comparing to those "brand new" sensors of other systems...what do we learn? Iso 1600:

NEX5n > NX100 (but frankly...difference is far to be as HUGE unlike people do say)
NX100 = m4/3 or (this is same ballpark...exept m4/3 has more chroma noise)

At Iso 3200:

Nex5n > NX100 (superiority is here clearer)
NX100 = m4/3 (same...except more chorma noise for m4/3)

All in that Iso...they all provide so much crapy rendering unprocessed that I don't see why so much fuss for the NEX5n sensor. NEX's image is cleaner but frankly...still sucks at such high Iso.
