Re: D3 - really horrible?

I have seen the Nikon D3 sample shot at ISO 25600 (Hockey goal

comparable to some other DSLRs at 1600 or 3200. - but then it should
be good given the size of the photosites on a full frame sensor (and
the price).

The balance between luminance and chroma noise on any two RGB cameras with CFA filters depends on the conversion routines. In the unlikely event that one camera leans more towards luminance noise, it is because there is a large low-frequency component to the noise, and that would not be good.
