There's detail and detail, look at the bank note in the image below, only the good old F200 and G5 show any detail, it's been smeared away by all the others.

Sensor size still dominates at lower ISO. Then JPEG engine quality takes over.

Personally I don't buy a pinhead sensor camera for shooting high ISO's I would rather stick to sensible ones which is why Auto ISO400 is what I leave these on when out shooting.

I shoot RAW at high ISOs. But others do not.

I honestly don't see the point in this type of test, if you need high ISO shots take the appropriate camera. This is why Kim himself has moved to mirror-less now.

I shoot high ISOs regularly at concerts. And this shows me that RAW is still the only viable options. But for Facebook shots, the new cameras have excellent saturation, so I think I will have to augment the tests with a reality check ...
