ISO 12,800 Test – Nikon Df vs Sony A7 – Zero Noise Reduction and Low Light
Just for fun I decided to test the two low light champs in a low light zero noise reduction high ISO 12,800 test!
The Nikon had the $1700 58 1.4 attached and shot at f/1.8 and 1/640s – combo cost $4400
The Sony A7 had the $1000 Sony/Zeiss 50 1.8 attached and shot at f/1.8 and 1/640s – combo cost $2700
Both had Noise Reduction turned OFF to see the true sensor performance at high ISO (NR smears details).
Both focused just fine here.
You can click on each image for the full size from camera JPEG. You can see the Nikon vs Sony color signature here as well. The Nikon is known to be the best current production low light champ and high ISO shooter with that D4 sensor inside and the Sony A7 is the new sensor on the block. How do you think they stacked up?
Many have asked what speakers are shown here..you can read my review HERE.
