Keep output size in mind

Thanks for the comparison. So, for clarification to the scientifically challenged: your analysis expects the D800 to perform below the D3 in image noise. Am I correct?

That's according to the red curve, showing the D800's per-pixel performance, which is only important for huge prints or heavy cropping. If you print at about the same size with the D800, it generally out-performs the D3/D700 (see the green curves).

At the most common print sizes, the D800 performs admirably at high ISO.
