Re: Sean, nice image; however, a 1 meg crop would not be sharp.

It appears to be a difference in mentality. Most here will prefer 3 stops lower noise levels over higher sharpness with 3 stops more noise once past ISO1600. Below that I'd agree with your methods but past ISO1600 give me lower noise over pixel level sharpness any day as you lose detail anyway at those ISO levels which is seen by both your crops.

I have drawn the line at ISO 800, but it also depends on the scene. If I am shooting a person and they're filling much of the frame then I can go higher than if they're just a part of the scene as I lose the details more quickly that way. But my image was very slow. 1/60 and I am pretty confident in 100% crop sharpness much of the time on largely static subjects.
