Z7 noise performance
1

Hi everyone,

Coming from D800 I have been really happy with my new Z7. Compact, fast card reading and full of nice mirrorless features.

But when I went to shoot a few images in an event this weekend I was slightly surprised by the amount of noise at ISO1600... Not that there is that much of it, but was expecting it to be less than with my old camera, Z7 having BSI and dual-gain for example.

Looking at dpreview image comparison tool, it almost looks like there has not been much change in the last 6 years?

Again, am really happy with the new camera, just surprised there's so little difference... Would think all these new technologies would result in more visible difference. Or D800 must have been ahead of it's time?
