Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivities)

It's interesting to see the different approaches taken by each manufacturer to keeping visible noise as low as possible at such high sensitivities. Sony are applying a combination of NR with the emphasis on luminance reduction (hence the slightly soft pastel-like images at ISO 3200), Nikon have gone (as they always do) for primarily chroma noise reduction which produces more detailed images with a more natural film-like grain. The other two appear to have struck a balance between these two. Overall the Nikon D300, Canon EOS 40D and Olympus E-3 all produce equally as good images (if with different 'looks'), the A700 images look a bit over processed.
