Thank You!

I had a thought to add about companies like the lion but naming them would be too political.

Seapy - that "frog" is an Amaga Lizzard. Toooo beautiful for words to watch.

David - these lion and cheetah and Leopards all have names. I avoid using that if I can. Wildlife shouldnt have names. Except Frikkie. Frikkie isnt wildlife anymore. He lies by die fire at night (the jackal in the other thread)

Whoops!  My apologies to the Amaga Lizzard.  I applaud the diversity of wildlife you have covered so well in what I imagine are demanding conditions.

The usability seems to have been improved in recent years thanks to the reduction of the chrominance noise.  I can easily observe the luminance noise in these images, but don't see any chrominance noise which looks more bothersome than the luminace noise.

Also, users of the newer cameras without anti-aliasing filters are less in need of unsharp masks which tend to exaggerate the noise.

I think Nikon's Hi ISO performance has been great since the D7100 and for images taken in good light, it's easy.  I shoot starscapes a lot and the best conditions are moonless nights - that really sorts out the good noise performers from the bad.  My buddies Canons can't touch my nikon.  My biggest disappointment was the performance of my D850 with its BSI sensor in comparison to my D750.  D750 wins.  :o

Right. Nikon's high pixel count sensors tend to be optimized for the best base ISO (in this case 64) image quality and then high ISO is as good as it can be given the design for optimal base ISO.

BSI was used to organize the wiring and circuitry in such a way that high fps rate (and full frame 4K) was possible.

Sony seem to be able to do a bit better at high ISO with their 42 MP sensor but Nikon seems to consider ISO 64 a priority. I like it because it reduces the need for high speed sync in outdoor flash and also reduces the need for ND filtering for water flow images, not to mention of course the higher SNR.
