    Tried a Panasonic G7+kit lens+25/1.7+14/2.5. While it was great for video work in both 4K and HD, stills were very noisy, even at base ISO. APS-C is definitively the minimum acceptable sensor size for me, anything smaller is just a toy.

    Bought a camera which got great reviews from respected reviewers, but it was rubbish, so I never buy anything expensive anymore which I did not test myself for a couple of days.

    Cranking up the ISO way high on a DSLR from 2008. Yeesh, ruined my photos for the rest of the day.

    I won't make the mistake again of trusting any camera manufacturer to be honest in the highest ISO published delivers a nice clean photo. 4 stops over base is pushing it for much of an enlargement from what I've seen.

    I guess it depends on size and how picky you are. I did a 14" wide print off a ISO 6400 Z6 file and it looks pretty good.

    There fixed it for you. :p

    Not much you can do, once the marketing spin doctors get their hands on any product, all bets are off.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Marketing spin doctors are the equivalent of the stagecoach robberies from the wild west days. You don't notice the noise of ISO 3200 on cropped sensors until you start printing at 24x36 and then I know not to do it. It's like when Fuji was pushing ASA800 speed wedding film that was way to grainy for anything I would want hanging in my house. I was at a major trade show some years back and Fuji was pushing that film like it was the latest greatest achievement in the photo world. It was the best answer for no flash available light only maybe when it's that or nothing. Expecting prints you would exhibit from a D5300 body at ISO 12800 is ludicrous in my neck of the woods. Pure spin doctor hype.

    My v3 has too much noise at ISO 800 on a cloudy day. It really needs good light.
