Re: noise is still not convincing, but the lens is

Thank you for the hint and the conclusions...

...it still seems to be a (very) low ISO camera and the noise behaviour which can be seen so far, is a bit disappointing due to the expectations, that it should be (at least) 1 stop better, than the Merrill.

I agree, it is disappointing... that they estimated too low, the noise looks to be somewhat better that a stop improved, judging by all real samples so far.

Especially the high ISO samples at one of the links.

You should know, that a stop "improvement" may come from a different way to chose the ISO numbers, as already hinted:

If I would rename the ISO 400 setting of a camera to ISO 800...

...would this result in 1 stop improvement?

We have seen, that the later SPP versions began to desaturate the shadows, to hide the blotches...

...now, if you show a example with desaturated shadows and then lift the shadows (like rick decker did) - where should the blotches come from, if they were already desaturated, in the picture to start from?

What it shows, is that they didn't apply that much, detail smearing, luminance noise reduction in the shadows...

...but that was not the main goal - or?
