nikon redesigned so called microlenses, which seemed to be also one
part of causing noise so.....NO canon cannot provide a firmware
upgrade to reach the level of low noise as the D3.......the 1dsIII is
"probably" using the same microlenses technology like the 5D, and has
a MUCH higher pixel density and the 2nd to smallest pixel size of all
cameras, i think the new 450D has even smaller.

See the Canon white papers on micro lens design and you will see that it was optimized in the last generation over what was done for the 5D.
