No we are comparing cameras.

The analysis is of the noise performance of what comes out of the camera (sensor + processor), not the sensor.

If the Canon lens lets only 90% of the light through and the Nikon lens nearly 100% this will account for at least part off the small exposure time differences that were observed by dpreview.

Irrelevant from a user's standpoint. For now, DSLR's are not modular, and we are stuck with the sesor that comes with the body.
