I'm not sure about your comparison to the Nikon, but if you are comparing a high iso shot to the one's on dpr, you should make sure you are shooting a well lit shot. If you are shooting at high iso in dim light, you will see a lot more noise than you would if you shoot at high iso in bright light.

Indeed, the OP seems to be trying to do two things here that probably can't be mixed easily. For the comparison with DPR, the tests need to be done in bright light.

But, at the same time, comparing two cameras' low-light performance (high-ISO with low light) is of course an entirely legitimate thing as well. In fact, I would think that it's the more relevant test for most photographers and situations.
