Re: How noisy is your 7D?

But that\'s not really my point. I would rather have a camera with an APS-C sensor having 12 million *clear and sharp* pixels than one with 18 or 24mp that injects golf-ball size grain at ISO 400 and above and in which noise processing kills all sharpness at the file level.

Ah, I see. Yes, I misunderstood. It looks like you and I are of the same mindset, then.

\"Clear and sharp pixels\" is one of the reasons I held such high hope for AA-filterless cameras like the new Fuji offerings, but it seems -- so far, at least that -- the theory isn\'t being matched by real-world improvements.

Larger sensors with larger sensels still seem to give the best performance at any given point in time. I just wish I could afford the jump to medium format digital.
