like whoa.... more samples. un-altered http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/D3S/D3SA7.HTM yeah. im sure both Canon and Nikon are pretty on par with this type of ISO performance, so all i can say is wow. Technology FTW!!! iso10,000 I mean, come on!!!!! Stunning. the 102,400 iso has much to be desired but still. I think it could be used in newspaper print. and with some NR can be used in max size of 4x6.
