The first image is a jpeg shot of my house.

The 2nd image is a crop from the first image of the flag in front of my house. This demonstrates the excellent cropping I was hoping for with 36MP of resolution! This was a hand-held large standard jpeg at f/2.8, 1/1250th, ISO 100, using a 24-70mm lens at 24mm.

The 3rd image is indoors without flash handheld, raw, ISO 6400, 70mm, 1/60th, f/2.8.

I have done no pp on any of these.

I think these demonstrate the exceptional accuracy of the exposure and excellent jpeg processing in the camera. I could see very little improvement with raw images over jpegs.

Also, the noise at ISO 6400 is lower than I thought it would be.
