Smaller sensors . . . I often feel that I can detect a greater readiness to lose smoothness in

So many possibilities . . . You use COne for conversion and editing. I use ACR and PS. I use Topaz Denoise AI
extensively and make sure the file is smooth before any fiddling with USM, LCE, any tools that work on edges in any way.
I don't experience what you describe at ISO 400 and below. At 800 and above, quality definitely gets a lot worse. And
yet, I have photos at 800 and 1600 that have come out very nicely, with extensive help. :-)
I know you've looked at my ZS200 gallery. I've since added over 50 photos to it. I don't think you will see the effect
you mention. <https://photos.app.goo.gl/xjdsgFgZdbrZk9yL6>
but images from my Fujis are easier for me to fiddle with.
That's good. I like the way things are always moving around. Jim has just moved from Fuji to Oly, due to problems he was
having . . .
I’d love to have a go with the Sony compacts (they look cool as well)
For a reason wiped out, at least for now, by COVID-19, I have two 1" sensor superzooms, the ZS200 and a Sony RX10 IV.
Quite the contrast. The Sony is enormous in comparison. OTOH, the zoom is a lot longer, out to 600 mm eq. vs. 360 mm,
It's pretty impossible to really compare zooms, vast combinations of FL and aperture. The Sony lens is something of a
marvel and overall better than the Panny in my samples.
but I’m ready to spend money on the Fuji X100F.
Have fun with it!
