rabbitmountain -- It's a good shot, and you've done well with your tools. It's just not the type of detail vs. noise I hope to get in the smooth tone areas. (I only have a 22" monitor, and I look at it from about 18" with +2.00 diopter reading glasses, to see best details)
Hi Jim, thanks for watching the image. I assume you watched the big image on photobucket or downloaded it. Exposure is a very precise job with the 5D @3200. My clients are happy with the results and that is what counts if one wants to make money and have smiling faces.
snapsy -- Thanks for the link to your comparison. For smooth mid tone area, like the brown shoe and laces, it looks like the 5D at 1600 is about equal to the 5D3 at just over 3200, or about a stop and a third or half advantage, which corresponds to what I've seen elsewhere. It seems I get roughly a stop advantage from the 5D2 and 1Ds3. I'm hoping (like many, I presume!) that the next sensor from Canon will have about a 2 stop higher ISO advantage over the older 5D.
Stanj did an excellent ISO test with his 1Dx and 5D3. We could see the 1Dx gain almost 1 stop extra high ISO performance compared to the 5D3. I recommend it.
