Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivities)

The small difference between the D40X and the D60's new 'Expeed' processing is most obvious at higher ISO settings, where the D60 produces images that are marginally softer but have noticeably less visible noise (particularly the color blotches of chroma noise). The difference between the D60 and the Canon EOS 400D isn't huge (the Canon does slightly better at high ISO settings), nor in truth is the difference between the D60 and the Olympus E-410 (though the D60 is doing a better job at ISO 1600).

As noted elsewhere the D60 uses rather conservative sharpening (for a camera at this level), and if you add a little unsharp masking the output start to look very similar to the Canon. Overall the D60's high ISO output represents a small, but not insignificant improvement over the D40X.
