Yes I read that thread on DPReview, interesting stuff, but lost in the technical analysis is the reality: no matter how it is doing it, the d7000 is producing excellent shots at ISOs up to 3200 and usable photos at ISO 6400.
No doubt the FF camera has an inherent advantage for noise suppression, but what her post shows is that the sensor technology matters as well. If what she says is true (I have not tested it, I will assume she is correct) than the d7000's results are even more impressive.
I would be interested, again presuming her statement is correct, to know what the cut off was for the d90/300(s). If it was similar than the sensor technology means far more than I thought.
