Doesn´t look that bad for being a Nikon cam...

No news. Already in D50 Nikon was able to push noise low by putting NR in the camera FW.

But actualy I do not think the noise level is the problem, but the loss of system resolving power i.e. how much details are left in the high-ISO images. And there the NR does not help, but actually makes things worse. Only way to have both clean AND SHARP high ISO is to have a low noise in the images from the sensor.

Why don´t you just relax man... Nikon improving (?) its high iso
performance doesn´t make you a worse photographer, does it ... Nor
quoting Ansel Adams a better one...

Was that "how good" or "how bad?" What I saw were samples showing
the same old higher noise levels for Nikon.

I'm not sure why it remains to be seen which sensor is better. The
results are out there. Nikon has slighly more MP and more noise.
If you shoot only in well lit areas, go for Nikon if you otherwise
like it.

But the comparison of the D80 with the 30D? That seems odd.
Better comparison is D80 with 400D.

I don't know that it's that hard. Yes, there is a bit of static,
but the first I saw a link of samples showing how good the D80 at
high ISO, was here on the Canon board. I'd say the majority of
posts have good tips on comparing.
