The noise issue is secondary, IMO. If I buy, it will be because of handling,
lens quailty, and image quality. The higher-than-the-competition-from-C*NON
noise can be compensated for by software processing. We've all dealt with
grain in the past, it's no different than noise. I don't shoot at high ISO's
much, so the issue may be minor. The C*anon CMOS chips definitely have lower
noise at the higher ISO's, which is a big plug for them.
OTOH, I am probably just talking myself into something. :-)
