Nikon finally gets the noise down.

Well, I've finally found a way to look at D3 RAWs, thanks to Emil Martinec.

The D3 seems to collect about twice as many photons as the Canon 5D at the same ISO, and has slightly lower read noise at ISO 1600. I haven't looked at low ISO files yet.

Anyway, it looks like the D3 does what Canon has been failing to do; maintaining high QE and low high-ISO read noise at the same time. None of Canon's APS-H and FF digitals have been very efficient in capturing photons; Canon's high-ISO performance has been due mainly to low read noise.
