This series is by the same person who did an earlier series that had NR on. Here is one with all turned off, from 100 to 25k ISO.

http://bophot.blogspot.com/2010/10/nikon-d7000-in-d700-kratka-primerjava_27.html

All the shots with were with f/7.1 AWB. The D7000 had its kit lens, 18-105vr and the D700 had the 28-70 2.8, a much better lens....in theory.
A couple things stand out, one is how at f/7.1, the lowly D7000/18-105 showed more fine detail. And how the color sensitivity hung in better than the D700 as ISO reached high levels. Note the red ring around the eyes of the teddy bear are displayed by both cameras at low ISO but gradually mutes and disappears at the ISO of the D700 increases.
I never could have imagined discussions 2-3 months ago trying to spot the differences between images of a top of the line FX with pro glass and a consumer class Dx camera with a plastic kit lens.
One additional note, the FL was kept constant so the FX camera to subject distance was adjusted to have the same field of view. That means the background is out of focus due to narrower DOF, which would have an effect on the apparent smoothness of the background on the D700. There was also a WB difference that affects the background color.
Very impressive indeed.
I can't wait to get my hands on for some portraits with my 85 1.4 or 70-200 for my own tests
