Are these FZ200 shots more or less noisy than you would expect?

Looks as expected to my eyes

FZ200, SOOC:

Nothing special here in terms of subject matter/composition etc. I'm primarily interested in what other FZ200 owners have to say about how noisy these images are. There's definitely a little more noise here than I expected at base ISO.


I don't own an FZ200 but I do own a couple models from older generations.  Compared to them I find these shots about the same, noise-wise, though the noise looks nicer and affects smaller pixels due to the higher MP count.

I also note that the bokeh seems relatively good, actually it looks better than that from various DSLR lenses (I also own a DSLR) especially super-zoom lenses.

Overall this is, I think, good advertising for the FZ200
