Not sure you are talking my two 1D3 samples or dtuason's samples?

At such ISOs 800 or 1250, 7D simply cannot match under such mixed (not ideal) lights. I know clearly as I also own 60D and have taken many portrait photos. At end I concluded in this particular area my 5D1 (now I also have 5D2) and 1D3 are clearly better. Therefore I don't know use 60D but only 1D3 and 5D1 (now 5D2) for serious portrait but only for wife/kids snapshots. I only ran very basic skin smoothness in the two shots but you can see they still retail amazing facial details under these high ISOs. I found people's faces are one of the most obvious materials to show textual details, and the area clearly show advantages of bigger sensors.

I don't notice the details on those shots. I'm too distracted by the blue shadows caused by mixed lighting.
