That's mostly true, but there is a bit of light(pun intended) in the D3S, which appears to have added about half a stop. But I was surprised to find you are dead on generally, I thought the "S" actually did improve the sensors, but it doesn't look like it mostly.

So I'm either waiting for the 200-400/F2, or the D5, to get the 2-3 stops I really want?

From DX0Mark ISO performance (sports) :

D3 = 2290
D3S = 3253

D300 = 679
D300S = 787

D70 = 529
D70S = 529

D2X = 476
D2XS = 489
