How does the D3 achieve such high ISO?

Re: This would make sense...

If the overall noise is virtually the same, then why is the D3
superior at ultra high ISOs? If it's simply NR, why is Nikon's NR so
much superior to NoiseNinja, NeatImage, etc.?

Is it? I like the natural look. I don't use any NR software, per se.

Simply because something is more "natural" does not necessarily make it more pleasing. I'm sure you've woken up to a few faces that send that point home. : )

Regardless of which look you prefer, is it possible for other noise reduction programs to emulate both noise and detail of the D3 with a 1DsIII image? In other words, can a 1DsIII image be made to have basically the same overall noise and detail as the D3 at ISO 25600?
