    They are crappy photos taken with a pre-production D300 and
    18-200 lens that tell very little about anything.

    FWIW, Nikon must now use massive amounts of a new type of
    NR. Check out the D3 vs 1DIII threads where disbelievers
    are plenty. This "new NR" increases shadow and highlight
    detail, saturation, dynamic range, so that the pictures just
    plainly look much better than the Canon ones. Somehow they
    are doing something "in camera" that isn't possible on
    post-processing - silk purse from sow's ear - because we
    know that Canon make the best sensors!

    Why would it have to be in camera noise reduction and not just a
    characteristic of the new chip? (I'm not trying to be argumentative ...
    I'm just curious.)

    Or both.

    Because the "heavy chroma NR" theory appears to have
    originated in part from viewing raw files in Nikon ViewNX,
    (AFAIK the only way to see them until updates to CaptureNX
    and other raw converters are available). The conclusion from
    Canon shooters used to the very good performance of Canon's
    5d and 1DIII - when seeing something from Nikon
    *significantly* better - is that "it can't be true".
    As far as I can tell, ViewNX applies _no_ NR.
    The D3 produces outstanding unmatched high ISO performance.
