Re: Yes

This is the sort of test I wanted to see. I agree it shows the FZ50 noise to be in the same ball-park per sensor area as the 10D. Of course the 10D design is more than three years older than the FZ50's design so if you get the chance to compare the FZ50 to the 400D with each at their best ISO and pushing the shadows to make the noise obvious then I would certainly like to see that.

In the near future back side illuminated sensors have the potential to outperform front side illuminated sensors in quantum efficiency which means that the smallest sensors may have the highest sensitivity on a per area basis until the larger sensor technology catches up.
