... by making a blunder. I stopped in a village center on my way back from a meeting at just about noon. Sun was out, I had camera set to Av mode, and I thought Auto ISO, with aperture at F8.0. That's my default for walking around with the 24-240. Long story short; I quickly discovered that the ISO was set to 12800. I discovered that when a 2EV bracket all looked over exposed in the EVF. After discovering my error, I redid the shot. Then, when I got home I had a look in Lightroom and decided to see if I could "save" the over exposed image. Here are the results. I'm including the full frame and 100% crops of both versions and also the LR develop settings. Sharpening and everything else is at default. First the 12800 ISO image: 100% Crop 100 ISO 100% crop 100 ISO image: Lightroom Develop settings: This is not a recommendation to be careless with camera settings. But is does illustrate how well the sensor is able to handle extreme Expose-to-the-Right. And how little noise is present even at the extreme ISO.
