Nikon Z50 Test Photos. For the ISO test series, the photos are shot in raw format (14 bit lossless compressed) and imported into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, then exported as JPG.  I will keep the defaults Adobe applies to the raw files, which includes some lens corrections and maybe also some mild color noise reduction...but I don't add any luminance noise reduction myself. I did set the Picture Control to 'Standard' in Lightroom to simulate the 'Standard' picture control in the camera, but let's not get to focused on the details. These are just (mostly) very mildly touched photos for the simple purpose of having a general idea of what the image quality is for high ISO and so on.  By the way, I did skip some of the ISO settings to keep the number of photos down. 

NOTE: The other photos I included (at the top) are not really for an ISO series test and these will be edited more and/or cropped as well.  I include them just so you can see the final result of my editing and how I leave the photos.  They are not necessarily all 'test' photos.  They may also included a vignette added during editing.

Lens for the ISO test was the Nikon 16-50mm Z mount kit lens set to f/7.1 at 35mm. I also added some other photos from the Nikon 50-250mm Z mount lens made for the Nikon DX Z mount body.
