ISO performance ISO 100 and ISO 200 give very clean images as you’d expect. At ISO 400 and ISO 800 shots are pretty good but noise is evident at both speeds, although detail isn’t too adversely affected. From ISO 1600 onwards noise is much more obvious although at ISO 1600 and 3200 it’s very filmic – not blotchy or coloured. ISO 1600 is good enough for critical use and with some noise reduction in software will give impressive results. Noise from ISO 6400 onwards is strong and detail is lost amid the noise so the top speeds are best avoided for critical work. Shot on an EOS 760D with an EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens. The exposure for the ISO 100 shot was 1.3secs at f/8. Raws were processed in Lightroom CC with no noise reduction.
