Looking at these makes you appreciate the old film days. You can use different bodies or brands and as long as you use the same film, same quality lens & exposure the color & noise would look the same or close to it.

Sorry, I don't get this. Today too, as long as I use the same sensor (camera) and lens I get the same color and noise. Are you complaining to the fact we cannot change sensor on the same camera body? Then yes, I can see this (well you can in medium format).

Nope, I just thought it would be nice if all four of my Nikon's color matched when using the same settings. Makes PP a little faster when using difference Nikon models during a photo shoot. I guess I want things to be too easy. My D300's are very close, some difference in my D600 but I can tweak to get them close. My D70 you need to work at. Since I have the D600 now, I can just use my D70 for family stuff.

In the old film days (I printed millions of photos) I used to make proofs for consistency. Today I open my files from raw and develop them on a color monitor, with much much much less proofs for the same level of consistency. No differences at all for me, except digital is far superior in every way, even consistency (it was a pain when you needed to use two or three different films for a job).

I agree and like I told Tony I'm not recommending any one to switch back to film. I don't like film, that's why I stop using it and have my film cameras setting in a camera bag.
