Fujifilm XT3 review - Quality

Quality

To measure and compare the noise levels on the Fujifilm X-T3, I shot the following scene in RAW+JPEG mode at every ISO value and took 100% crops from the area marked by the red rectangle for comparison in the table below. I then repeated the test moments later with the Fujifilm X-E3 (representing the previous X-Trans III generation) and the full-frame Sony A7 III for direct comparison. The X-E3 is in the left column, the X-T3 in the middle, and the Sony A7 III on the right.

To measure and compare the noise levels on the Fujifilm X-T3, I shot the following scene in RAW+JPEG mode at every ISO value and took 100% crops from the JPEGs for the table lower on the page. JPEGs are straight out of the camera.
