The D90 is proving to be just a great camera! Each technical test or
real life sample shows how good this camera is re IQ.

One comment though: you underexposed the background with D80, and
that shows (by using flash). Why didn't you set it to 1600 and no
flash? It'd have been a better comparison.

Okay, I rummaged through my archives trying to find more similar shots, these 2 are both at ISO 1600, with very similar exposures, and have similar shadow areas. In particular, I'm keying in on the dark jacket. The D80 did very well, actually, but still, the dark (near black) areas are visibly noisier.

D80 & VR18-200 @27mm, f/5.6, 1/80sec w/ ISO1600

D90 & VR16-85 @85mm, f/5.6, 1/100sec w/ ISO1600

Test everything; hold on to the good.
