    Fuji’s ISO are over-rated, 12800 is more like 8000 from others, so always take their results with a grain of salt. Equalise exposures via ISO for a given aperture to compare them.

    Also jpg’s are a useless measure, show us RAW’s.

    I totally agree with Odin’s above statement.
    BTW, I never shoot color above ISO 640 with Fuji X-Trans III, and above ISO 1400 with X-Trans II. Sensors in older Fujis are better.
    I like to use high ISO grain for B&W.
    Otherwise, I seldom exceed base ISO.
    So, all those high ISO tests are for me plain BS.

    Well… I got a GR III and I am comparing it with the results I have been getting over the years with the X-T2, X-T3, and X-H1, and the GR III files are by far worse than the Fuji files in similar lighting conditions. Bad to the point I am seriously thinking of sending the GR III back to get an X-100F.
    And the AF on the GR III is dreadful, even after the 1.10 firmware update. It only does a semi-OK job in perfect light. What a disappointment.
