Re: Why is D200 that much noiser than D80?

D80 and D200 use a similar sensor, I'm sure it's different, but the difference is more related to the I/O channels than anything else...

Absolute noise level of a sensor at a given ISO setting means nothing, the one thing that really counts is the noise level vs detail level... all other things being equal. The AA filter does affect the level of detail the sensor can extract from a signal, I asusme the D200 has a more aggressive AA filter...

It would be nice to see a RAW comparison of both cams with NR turned off, no sharpening, etc... I'm sure the D200 would perfom so close to the D80 that it would be extremely hard to see a difference...
