Noise level in X-E1 and X-T1 is Excellent (Dpreview) or Mediocre (Pop. Photo.)
6 months ago

Confusion here. Latest (Apr.) Popular Photography arrived yesterday with a review of the Fuji X-T1. It has the same noise ratings (p.73) as that magazine's test of the X-E1 a few months ago. Noise ranges from Extremely Low at ISO 100 to Moderate at ISO 800. It is unacceptable at ISO 1600 and up.

The noise test of the X-T1 in DPReview states: Up until ISO 6400, it comfortably out-performs most of its peers, both in terms of noise level and detail retention.

Please help me understand!
