Re: Moon Maid's sensor comparison

If these graphs hold true and if pattern noise isn't an issue, the D800 will really be an ISO-less camera. If you push the ISO200 graph 5 stops, it seems to line up about perfectly with the ISO6400. I don't know if that was your extrapolation or based on actual measurements. If on measurements, that's great news! I could see being able to SW push process the ISO 200 image, assuming the SW applies the correct tone curves and such with such extreme processing.

Even at the pixel level at ISO200, the D800 has cleaner shadow than the D3s starting about EV -5.5. At the normalized level, it beats everything but the D4 normalized and even there, the D800 has better shadows.

Thanks so much for the effort you put into this!
