D7100 Image Quality Comps
1

Found this through Youtube from the nice folks at dkamera tv:

http://www.dkamera.de/testbericht/nikon-d7100/bildqualitaet.html

It's in German, but test images easy to understand, you can also look through Google Chrome to get some of it translated.

Nikon D7100

It's confirming the extra detail, likely due to the lack of AA filter. I checked the images with D7000 and 16-85, differences are clear.

Re: D7100 Image Quality Comps

Something doesn't make sense with these tests. At high iso 3200, and above in jpg, it appears a very slight advantage goes to D7000. If you look at raw, a fairly large advantage goes to D7100, all other things being equal. More conflicting evidence, from another site I never heard of.

I think we've fairly well established that if nothing else D7100 would have to have better, even far better resolution, but these tests are very confusing when it comes to noise. D7000 seems to hold a slight edge in jpg noise, while in raw D7100 seems to hold a large advantage. If this makes any sense, I do not know. I hope some of the more credible sites have their test results soon, because for myself, all this conflicting evidence is getting tedious.

Looks to me to have some NR going on

Pretty well done, but at 6400 and up the chroma noise starts to disapear and the D7000 actually outresolves the 7100 at the highest ISO's ISOs. Or the tests are screwed up.

I have doubts as to the accuracy of these results. the exposures are not accurate. That ends the test.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
