Is the a7riv super noisy?
10

Just purchased one and have been giving it a test spin.  Yes, the resolution is astounding, but so is the pixel noise.  Compared to images at the same iso out of my Canon 5dmkiv (with 1/2 the MP)  the a7riv looks like pepperoni pizza.  Even down sampling to a similar image size, or viewing the images at 50% the noise remains greater in the a7riv.  While my oof backgrounds out of the 5dmkiv look silky smooth at 800 or 1600, on the a7riv they look like the snow on an old tv.   I really want to like this camera, so what am I doing wrong?
