Re: agreed, noise reduction

Yes, this came out a few years ago from Chuck Westfall. At the time we were a bit stunned. All consumer Canon dSLRs have a bit of processing, even in the RAW. There is a bit of sharpening and at higher ISOs some noise reduction. How do you think a 40D keeps up the S/N with a 5D which has bigger photosites?
