E-3 high ISO shots with D300 high ISO shots

A local camera store in Colorado Springs was hosting a demo day with manufacturer reps. from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Leica, and of course, Olympus. I messed around with a lot of cameras, in particular the E-3...again.

I was surprised how big the 12-60 lens is, especially compared to the 14-54. When I saw the 14-54 next to the 12-60, I thought for sure the 14-54 was the an old 14-45. Anyways, I took a lot of shots with the E-3 and a few with the new Nikon D300. I have no interest in this camera, but I thought was this was a good opportunity to shoot with it since I probably won't again.

I tried to take similar compositions at high ISO with the E-3 and D300...this test was very quick and obviously not scientific, but interesting, in my opinion, nonetheless. If you're interested, I have more higher ISO shots with the E-3 on my flickr website (link below my signature) Here are the details:

Oly E-3: JPEG (Large Fine...the Oly rep. hadn't even heard of the superfine setting and when I asked him how often he checks this Oly forum, he said "never." I was surprised.)
IS was on (I had just come from working out, so my hands were extra shaky)
All pics taken with 12-60.

Nikon D300: JPEG (Large Fine)

All pics taken with the 24-70/2.8 lens ( a beast of a lens, and instantly I saw the advantage of the Zuikos.)
