Yeap! Please use the old 80 bucks lens (28-105) that i used for my own shot and then come back to tell us what you found.;-)

I have no interest in what you think of your outdated camera and cheap lens. The image quality won't come close to what I want, at any ISO or of any photographically interesting subject/scene. Your test shot merely illustrates the ugly artifacts you consider acceptable and even weirdly pleasing in the pursuit of a noise-free photo of a piece of trash.

Wow! Perhaps this thread will be locked soon. Too bad, because the original question never got a clear answer.

The original question was whether "bigger pixels" were "less noisy". Apparently the answer is "it depends".
