My G1X does better job even at ISO8000http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/6479708377/photos/2232555/iso8000-chroma-noise-test-g1xSome may not see the point to pay for the FF unless one needs that shallow DoF
Wow,people this camera is fantastic! Look at the detail on that horse in full size image ...at ISO3200 .I have to get this camera!!
The Vario-Sonnar had something to do with that. It's a heck of a lens.
