90D, waiting and exploring

I am waiting to get a good idea about 90D's tracking capabilities.

My 80D is okay, 7DII was a disaster (returned it). I am happy with 5DIV AF and tracking, but hoping that 90D will be better.

In the meantime, I am playing with 90D RAW files. I think its shadow and chroma noise is quite a bit better compared to 80D. When resized to 80D size (6000x400), amount of photon noise and its characteristics appear to be similar to 80D, but with significantly better fine details. As a result noise reduction is much easier. An example.

Samples from Imaging Resource.

90D image, default chroma NR in ACR, then resized to 80D size (6000x4000 pixels), then NR with Topaz Denoise.

80D image, default chroma NR in ACR, no other change.

90D ISO 3200 image after NR has better detail compared to 80D ISO 800 image.

Click on the Original Size.

For wildlife, I hardly ever go above ISO 800. But it appears that even ISO 3200 would be better than 80D after NR. That' great.

If AF tracking is better than 5DIV I will get one.
