Are these noise levels acceptable from my 5DIII ??

I upgraded from a 7D to a 5DIII about 7 months ago, mainly due to noise issues. After reading many reviews I had been expecting a much higher standard. ISO levels of even 1600 have been leaving me frustrated. I really hope that I am just paranoid and I would love to hear your opinion.

Here is one example. This image was shot at 70mm, 1/40, f2.8 @ISO1600 with the 24-70mmL II. I have enclosed a downsized copy of the photograph and a 100% crop of the original (my internet is crap).

I would really appreciate some feedback from other users experiences. I really don't want to be thinking I got a dud.
