Re: High ISO is so bad on the E-510...

I was responding to the post above which I included and in particular his

"have at least 1 stop better ISO" comment which is clearly incorrect from every RAW comparison I have seen.


The 620 does have better performance in that it doesn't band at 800 (in shadows) and 1600 (everywhere). I can deal with grain, but big ol' streaks are just a disaster. But it's certainly not better by a whole stop.

It may have a more sophisticated luminance NR algorithm, but the first thing I'll do is turn that off when shooting jpegs anyway.
