Re: D300 versus 20D continued analysis

Canon 20d applies NR to jpegs and you cannot turn it off. If d300's NR is off, the test is not accurate. Having said that 20d's RAW with proper exposure at iso1600 can be used for pretty large size prints without applying any sort of noise removal (except for chroma reduction applied by the raw convertor).

Additionally, it is a bit unfair to compare an 8MP sensor to a 12MP one. The 12MP one is bound to be noisier. IMHO if NR off with d300 means NR completely off, d300 is doing pretty good in the noise department.
