Re: Fujifilm X-T1 comparison - it ain't the (full) truth :-)

Looking at the RAW files, the a7R is actually quite a bit cleaner than the a6000, especially in terms of Chroma noise. Not difficult to remove.

The X-T1 ISO6400 RAW looks really impressive.

too many cameras...

Yes, but you overlooked the fact that ISO6400 for the Fuji is - again - not ISO6400 of the Sonys.

Fuji "cheats" compared to Sony, if you take a look at the exposures for ISO3200 1/250 Sony, 1/160 Fuji XT1; ISO6400 1/500 Sony, 1/320 Fuji, thats about 2/3 of a EV.

So the Fuji runs at about ISO4000 instead of the displayed ISO6400. If you now compare ISO3200 Fuji with Sony ISO6400 (slightly unfair to the Fuji), then the results look very similar.

This is one thing which really turns me off with the Fuji cameras, same thing with the X-E2 which I tested in parallel to my aging Sony 5N, full stop difference at otherwide identical conditions (e.g. f8, ISO400, doubled exposure times with E2).

Since many people do not have the opportunity to directly compare, but instead just see "ISO6400" and marvel how good the picture looks, this seems an effective way to enhance Fujis market opportunities with - in my view - dishonest methods.

No offense meant to you of course, thanks a lot for sharing your experiences here

But possible add another crop comparison of ISO3200 to ISO6400 to show the audience what impact this has.

Another thing to note: The Fuji shots are focussed further back then the Sony.

Look at the shutter speed in the X-T1 shot compared to Sony's.

1/320 vs 1/500...in order to shoot the X-T1 at 1/500 speed, you would need something real close to ISO12800.....or just shoot the a6000 at ISO3200 to get a shot near 1/320.
