Nikon finally gets the noise down.

On second thoughts...

Christian's results are puzzling.

He seems to have forgotten about ISO 3200 banding issues on the 40D. Surely, that kills any possibility of trying to push the 40D to ISO 6400, regardless of applied strength of noise reduction.

"According the current measures, the Canon 40D CMOS is slightly less
noisy than the CMOS Nikon D3 CMOS, but the gap is not very

The readout noise of the Nikon and Canon CMOS detectors is very
similar. The high ISO sensitivity displayed by Nikon is for the
marketing: Nikon D3 CMOS (and also the CMOS D300 CMOS - Sony origin)
is a very high quality sensor, but in the end, Nikon just rises now
to the level of Canon technology."

So, if Canon has implemented a more aggressive noise-reduction
(fortunately NOT) like Nikon, the 40D may very well have the same
performance as the D3? Ho, ho, ho....
