In this case dual conversion gain for the Sony but noise reduction for the Pentax.

Maybe both? RN stays above a 'realistic' 1 e- after alleged noise reduction. I wonder why they would do that at such low ISOs. Is it possible that we are picking up on some other signature of the image-capturing process that we are interpreting as NR? The power spectrum does seem to flatten out in the last 20% of the spectrogram.

Rishi sent me some dark-field files last week. The spectra are high-frequency deficient at ISO 640 and above.
