You have the highest-resolution 35mm-format dSLR currently available;
it is not reasonable to expect it to also be the best
high-sensitivity camera. That is an unavoidable tradeoff.

You're right here of course, and I think Nikon probably made the better choice for this type of camera. It's geared towards PJ and sports photographers and for their publishing needs and shooting conditions I think most of them will gladly give up some at the low-ISO end to get better high-ISO performance. I'm not going to switch systems to get it - I don't doubt Canon will have an answer as technology inevitably improves and now that there is competition in this segment.
