Clearing up the "X-T2 is better than the X-T3 at high ISO" myth

Hey everyone.

I would like to post a few images here, provided by DPReview's comparison tool, just to disprove the myth that some people spread around, saying that the X-T2 is better than the X-T3 in high ISO situations.

I've seen this argument used quite a few times around here, and I think those arguments started from a misinterpretation of DPReview's findings.

Let's take a look at a few samples at ISOs ranging from 3200 to 12800.

It's pretty clear, at least to my eyes, that the X-T3 outperforms the X-T2 noticeably at every ISO value. I'd place the X-T3 at around 2/5ths of a stop better than the X-T2, so definitely not a game changer, but more importantly, not WORSE than the X-T2 as some people try to paint the picture, trying to defend the gear they own.
