Re: Fuji X-20 compared to Nikon D50

I don't agree, that sensor size matters that much. Then we can say that APSC X-Trans with 16MP cannot beat Nikon D70 with 6MP... however in this specific case, I assume that D50 wins. I had one (sold and bought S5 Pro) and when I get back to photos I made with D50 they are excellent - crisp, sharp, noise handled very well - Nikon should have made D50x with bigger viewfinder and more focusing points and it would be unbeatable entry level DSLR ...

Based on X10 vs X20 coparison on flicker it seems that both cameras have more or less same level of noise at higher ISO (I checked 1600 and above), while I prefer X10 as it has less distracting noise pattern and less artifacts - but it's my personal subjective feeling. So, if X10 and x20 are almost on par with noise, you can compare D50 ISO test pictures with X10:

X10 ISO1600

D50 ISO1600
