Well, even though I have a D3, I now have a D3s (long story) and despite thinking the D3 was top dog for ISO, I now know why people are getting so excited of the D3s!... This isn't the best example and I know I'll get better out of it... but the shot below was taken hand held no flash at 100s, f/4 70mm @ 4000iso !!!
The shot makes the room look fairly light, but it wasn't... I'll post a few better examples once I have a real play with it... cos right now I haven't done much past some initial testing and using it to partly shoot this wedding...
EDIT: second shot is a crop of the first

nice shots, not so much on the first but on the second I think quite a lot of noise is visible especially on her skin and the red balloons is where it stands out
is the second a crop from the first?
You can see the noise, but very fine!
Doubt it would show in print.
what people have to realise on these shots is that the effect of the noise is amplified because of the compression of the image. Ive seen first hand how fantastic the new D3s is and believe me, when you see an ISO 4000 image printed out on 27inch wide inkjet as I have you cannot fail to be amazed.
Great images Stew. You are a lucky guy!
Sorry, yes... the second shot is a crop of the first...

That is impressive, looks better than the D200 at 320 ISO!
