I see no reason to be biased towards one or the other.

OK lets say it is destined for the screen like you say, at what point are you going to posting a 100% full size image on the screen or anywhere near it?

My D2X's image when viewed at 100% on most monitor's today (100 dpi) is just shy of 43x29 inches. The 10 MP cameras would be a little smaller but not by all that much.

To fit all but the most severely cropped photo's from a 10 MPX image on screen drives the noise darn near invisible. Except for the most poorly taken, badly post processed photos. Any small differences there might possibly be in noise between the D200 and the D80 would never be seen.

Quite frankly on screen 100% crops are for reviews that need to find something to quantify, and nuts that have little connection with reality.

The image is much more important than the noise.
