Interesting results. Thanks!

It looks more like a wishful thinking than reasonable results. Because (based on different sources) the nominal/effective ratio becomes even more ridiculous, like that: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3171426#forum-post-41033648

And, by the way, the Fuji ISO3200 isn't any better than ISO1600 of D7000, it's only matter of NR software used. The OOC JPEG NR is better on Fuji. It seems the only advantage X-Trans gives over bayer CFA is the reduced computation complexity of some NR algorithms and there's no advantage left once you uses some advanced NR software.

Everything I've read and seen points to the fact that rating and measuring ISO is an inexact science, across all brands and sensor types. Interesting, but in the end, the most important thing to me is the output.
