The extra megapixel helps slightly at ISO 400 simply because you're enlarging slightly less to get the same sized print, so noise is that little bit less obvious. That said there is definitely less noise in the H2's image, whilst the noise reduction doesn't seem any more aggressive. This suggests that the new sensor is a touch less noisy in the first place, or Sony really has improved its noise reduction processes (the H2 features something called 'Clear Raw NR'). An improvement, even if not a quantum leap.
