    Paul, I'm enjoying your photos here and on your flickr. I'm curious and have to ask why you are not shooting some of these shots at lower ISO.

    Thanks fractal.
    I mainly shoot handheld and use the shutter speed and aperture required to get the shot. I'll use the lowest shutter speed I dare if the light is low, but to achieve the required dof a certain minimum aperture is required, in that case I have to use whatever ISO is required to get the shot.
    From my experience I'm happy using fairly high ISO's, generally I find the quality is fine and noise is not really a problem. Shooting m43 has benefits where you get twice the dof of field for a given aperture compared to full frame so can use a larger aperture (smaller numerical value) and a lower ISO accordingly, but now I'm shooting full frame too, I need to use smaller apertures to achieve the same dof and that means higher ISO, but with the A7ii and now the A7Rii high ISO's are not an issue, I'd not even think twice shooting up to 6400 ISO.

    thanks for the reply Paul! I wasn't sure if it had something to do with "stacking". I was impressed with the low level of noise on some of your higher ISO shots.

    Keep them coming. :thumbup:

    Cheers Fractal,

    here's one I took yesterday with my new A7Rii + Zeiss 55 f1.8, 6400 ISO, 1/40 sec, f11

    I'm impressed with the camera, very high contrast scene but no blown highlights even at 6400.

    RAW, processed in LR CC.
