no more noise in them than in properly exposed pictures I have seen elsewhere. HOW??????

That's not surprising.

Noise is very well controlled in the 7D. In fact, it seems to be only slightly higher than 5D2 samples I've seen, except you may be more likely to get banding from the 5D2. Some posted 7D samples were converted by a beta version of ACR that didn't deliver great results.

I can find a bit of noise at ISO 1600 in my 7D shots by looking for it. Nothing obviously noticeable below 1600, and it's only slightly worse at 3200. Just guessing, but I'd expect the 5D2 to show a bigger advantage at ISO 6400, and probably also at ISO 100 - 400.

The 7D seems to be optimized for 800 - 3200, although that might simply be the raw converter I've been using recently (Bibble 5 Pro beta). Or perhaps my threshold is higher, coming from the film world.
