TBH on 100% view they look abysmal:/

I know it's 24 mpix and these probably should be zoomed in that much, but there is a substantial loss of detail even at ISO 1600.

Hi dzaiba: All I can say is "it is what it is"....

I always post full-size test images so that I and others can evaluate them at 100%. I took several dozen of these images of the staff at the camera store at various ISO settings and chose the best ones to process and post here. There wasn't much involved regarding my technique, I needed to stay out of the way of customers and shoot on the fly from a distance. So this is what this camera and this lens was able to produce under these shooting conditions.

If you and others conclude that the IQ for these conditions is abysmal, well then I guess it is.

Thanks for your forthright opinion.
