Image quality (noise)
test results have been added to the Nikon D850
Here are some comparisons to get you started:
Nikon D850 compared to Nikon Z 7
Nikon D850 compared to Canon EOS 5Ds R
Nikon D850 compared to Sony a7R III
Note that these images were processed in their respective brand's RAW converter (Sony-blessed Capture One Express for Sony was used for the a7R III results).
With a sharpness setting of one (our current Nikon and Canon standard), the Canon appears undersharpened.
Also note that I updated this tool to permit additional scenarios, including not-full-stop ISO settings for some cameras.
The D850 (and Z 7) results have ISO 32 (extended) and ISO 64 included and (I'm sure you have been anxiously awaiting this) ISO 40000 results for the EOS R are now included.
Please report any problems found.
Please share these results with your friends with Nikon-based kits!
