d800 high ISO samples 100% size on Flickr

I'm blown away.

I downloaded all the original files. On my 27 inch 2560*1440 monitor, displaying them full screen I can't tell ISO100 and ISO3200 apart. Even at 100%, they're very similar.

6400 shows slight colour loss, but still fantastic imo. Noise in shadows, but the flowers look sharp and detailed still.

12800 gets worse in the shadows, but I think it would clean up nicely.

25600 looks like emergency only. Get rid of colour noise in Lightroom, and reduce the file size and it'll be ok.

I challenge anybody to open up ISO100 and ISO3200 and view them full screen (not 100%, but the maximum size your monitor can show). Flick between them. I honestly couldn't tell them apart.
