Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivities)

There's little visible (or measurable) difference between any of the Canons at higher ISO settings, and confirm that, for now, Canon retains its High ISO crown (thanks to superior processing and a more light-handed approach to noise reduction).

As usual Sony (and to a lesser extent Olympus) are using stronger noise reduction which has softened the output slightly and - in the case of the Alpha 200 - still failed to get rid of the strong chroma noise. Note that the Canon samples below were shot with noise reduction turned off; turn it on and you get results that are essentially free of chroma noise.
