Have you tried Dr. Brown's Stack-O-Matic?

In a very timely post on sansmirror.com, Thom Hogan shows what one can do with a lowly V2 by exploiting burst mode shooting and an exposure stacking utility.  A deeply underexposed and noisy shot suddenly looks - well - superb - when, in this example, 30 identical exposures are averaged:

All of you sports shooters are out of luck here, so I won't feel hurt if you move on to the next post.  But for landscapes such as the OP is shooting, a good tripod and a 1-2 second burst of shots at typical shutter speeds combined in - gulp - Photoshop - or, when Adobe decides it's a good thing, Lightroom.

As I stated, we've only just entered the era of computational photography.  If you photograph still subjects, you can get much of the performance of FF cameras with a good fast, stably supported burst.
