How does the D3 achieve such high ISO?

Still not with you...must be smoking different brands? :-)

If you look at the bell next to the star shaped design, it appears to me that all the 5d is doing is darkening the image by maybe a half of a stop. In the D3 image, you can see the reflection of the room.

The D3 image looks like it was taken at closer range, but it still appears that the 5D is just darkening the shot to "reduce noise."

Depending on the shot, I can use one that has a tad bit of noise but still shows detail versus one that just darkens the shot. Could be the difference of making $50 on a shot versus not.

Just my opinion folks...
