Re: G6 vs newest sensors: Real difference in high ISO noize

I seriously considered the G6; even now I have the odd pang of regret that I didn't get one. But a quick look at IR's New Indoor shots reminds me. Try the Nex 6 or other Sony 16mp sensored cam at 3200 and 6400 vs. the G6. You don't have to blow them up...

The processor in the G6 is pretty amazing but for indoor work it just doesn't have enough to work with above 1600 ISO. Since I shoot a lot at 3200 and 6400 indoors it matters to me. Sure, I don't have any actual shooting time on the camera, but if that's what IR could get out of it above 1600 indoors then I'm not expecting anything different.

I think there is quite a difference between shooting high ISO in good outdoor light for action versus using longer exposures indoors in incandescent or other weak and warm lighting.
