Vamp898: Lol Canon told something about 75% less noise? A bad joke
really guys, 3500 € for a "slightly improvement"? A slightly improvement is a free firmware upgrade but not a new camera for 3500 €
The Nikon noises the same, have 36MP and cost less xD that is just bad at all..
...read my posting one post up, there's more difference as it seems in this comparison.
Anyone saying there's not much difference between MK2 and MK3 using RAW, consider these two points:
- look at the RAW files in Adobe Lightroom (4.1 RC supports MK3) instead of the dpreview comparsion tool. Reset the development settings and set noise reduction to zero. I don't know why, but there's a much bigger difference there, to my eyes.
- all MK3 shots are taken with shorter exposure time than MK2 at the same ISO. That means a valid comparison would be e.g. MK2 ISO 3200 versus MK3 ISO 2500.
Add both points together and there's a good amount of more real-life difference between MK2 and MK3 RAWs than this comparison suggests.
