Continuing the previous thoughts...It would be very impressive also and would characterize the low light features if we could get a series of pictures about low light level target(s) with different parameters, e.g. exp. with 1/50 at iso 3200, 1/25 at iso 1600, 1/6 at iso 400 etc. by free hands and on tripod. This would not only give information about high-iso performance but also about lens and VR features in easily understandable mode. This is how most of us try to make usable pictures in bad illumination conditions with a new camera (and several times with our older well-known camera also).And one more idea which would be very interesting: same target with different light levels in lab environment, e.g. open iris, fix iso, e.g. iso=3200 with 1/100, 1/10, 1 sec, on tripod of course.
Yes, promising hi-iso performance, but:It would be reasonable to have much more high-iso samples from real-life environment, like night view of illuminated streets, buildings, also street portraits with low light levels. This desire is not just for this sample set but it is a general appeal. I am sure, most of the visitors of this site are most curious of the low-light capabilities of the cameras.My experience is that the low light behavior is much more understandable if we can compare real life photos about a certain well known or at least well imaginable target especially if the theme is commonly photoed by most of the photographers, like the above mentioned cases.Thanks.
Wow, this looks very promising for ISO 3200.
It looks pretty good. We could do with more high ISO examples.
