Okay, here is a quick little low light test.
I shot this hand held @ 21 & 30 db with the kit lens (cause I forgot the Nikon adapter at home – duh)
The original file is more crisp, has more detail and more grain. But Vimeo recompressed most of it away.
Actually the little bit grain (only luma noise) – even at 30db – is very pleasing to the eye – much like film.
