    Check out this guy's 3200 twilight landscape. 1/3 stop underexposed,
    very good noise control and great DR. Only issue is the coma and CA
    of the lens (note the bottom left). Those large sensors put lenses
    through hoops.

    Also f/5.6 compared to f/2.8 and possibly downsized versus full pixel.
    Odd that both shots are at 52mm (but a different viewpoint)

    Difficult to compare. The Nikon shot is at ISO 3200, but the Canon ISO
    400. There is a Canon shot there of the same bridge, but it is from
    before the firmware fix.

    The sky is darker in the 1/3 sized Canon shot, and it looks
    horrifically noisy.

    The shot that includes the bridge is from nearly twice the distance from the
    standpoint to the Opera House as the one that doesn't.

    That Canon shot is very much overexposed. The sails are not white, not even
    after as much rain as was had in the few weeks prior to that photo. There's
    a huge loss of detail in parts of the sails in the Canon shot.

    As ever it is not possible to compare shots taken under different
    conditions, even under controlled conditions results can vary and give
    different impressions.
