I completely support Legion5's conclusions... The results you achieved are pretty much in line with everything i've been able to formulate based upon sample images RAW & JPEG's...

Just because some people cannot accept the fact that the D800 is a visibly nosier camera... doesn't mean that we should dismiss his methodology...

There is blatant noise reduction in generous proportions at play... coupled with excessive sharpenning...

Face facts... cramming that many minuscule pixels onto a sensor was never going to end in a pretty picture at anything above ISO 3200...

The high ISO performance of the 5D III is clearly a marked improvement over the much hyped D4 as well... both in terms of detail retention & definition...

Nikon's days as the undisputed ISO king are long over... both in the APS-C & full frame categories... just something you're going tohave to live with...
