One thing I don't understand is that ISO 160 was chosen as the basic ISO of the 1 V2. The sample images I have seen has quite a lot noise (especially color noise) in the dark areas / shadows. Also the OOF background looks a bit noisy. It must have been possible to have a cleaner image if e.g. ISO 50 or 80 was chosen as the basic ISO. The P7700 with its much smaller sensor do it better at ISO 80 than the 1 V2 does at its basic ISO = 160 so I can't understand this design decision from Nikon.

Can you?
