D3 ISO 3200 image here - better than the 5D? (big pic!)

Looks as good or better than the 5D. OOF areas may be a bit "chunkier" than the 5D, but less chromo noise, especially less blue noise.

I'm sure Nikon folks are crazy about these results - this image looks like it has the same noise as a D2X or D200 at ISO800.

By the time you can actually buy a D3, the 5D will be over 3 years old. How far did Nikon pass up Canon in image quality, I wonder?

I don't think I will be going over to Nikon anytime soon...
