Re: D800 Noise

So are you comparing the D800 to the 5D or are you comparing the new 1.02 firmware to the old?  For both you really have to do a side by side comparison, not use 'well it looks better / worse than it did'.  The human visual system and memory is too easily fooled to be reliable.

If you have the 5D, you can shoot side by side.  If you just want to compare firmware versions, it takes but 10 minutes to swap out firmware.

But there are no menu settings that change RAW noise behavior.  The fact that you state the changes are just in two iso settings make me even more suspicious that you aren't seeing a real phenomena.
