Is it my eyes? I do see some banding. It is subtle though, and this being ISO 51200, I'm not going to complain.
This one bridge to far. The iso 20000 was great but this is for me...... Maybe a print of 10x15 cm would look still great.
picture really demonstrates the limits of the sensor, it's actually pretty good where it's well lit, but falls apart in the shadows. No banding is good to see, blotchyness is much easier to remove.
2 stops less and this would be a great image. looks marginally better than the 5dII at 12800 because of the lack of pattern noise(banding), it's softer than 12800 5dII though.
Yeah...i think they really crank up the noise reduction for the mk3..so the softness.
As a working architectural and scenic photographer, I would like to see a comparison at iso 100 of a twilight architectural and landscape scene with light and dark areas between the 5dii and the iii shot together so i can do a comparison.
