Re: AMAZING high ISO performance

Thank you for posting this.

These are very nice examples. It seems teh 5DII will be an amazing low light camera indeed. The blotchy artefacts I noticed in some previous samples are less obtrusive in the ones we have here and I am beginning to believe they are strictly JPG-related.

I compared the ISO 12,800 sample to a few of the ISO 3,200 images from my 5D and they are very very close. So, I'd say the 5DII offers an improvement of 1.5 to almost 2 stops over the old 5D. That is almost too good to be true. ISO 6,400 looks simply excellent to me.

I already love this 5dII. It looks much more elegant and well designed than the old one as well.
