Thank you.  When I look at the noise of my 30D vs the 7D pictures that I took, I do believe the 30D has more noise but it's qualitatively different.  The noise of the 7D bothers me more.  Does that make sense?

Yes it does.

But, when you compare, don't compare both at 100%, if pixel peeping remember the 7D has twice as many pixels, so maybe the 7D at 50% and the 30D at 100%. This is more representative of the difference you will see in a photo on a digital display or when printed.
