Is some sensors' High ISO Noise more pleasing than others?
Dec 2, 2012

Photographers endlessly debate the pleasantness of out-of-focus areas from different lenses.

Why are there no similar debates for the High ISO Noise from different sensors?

I've been comparing some different cameras and I definitely see some have uglier noise than others, even though the "amount" of noise is the same according to online references.
