I took the Mark III outdoors with the 400 f/2.8 II and did some testing with the high school soccer team. Not a lot of great action here, but I wanted to see what it could do in late afternoon shooting... so I pushed the ISO up to 3200 and 6400 on purpose. Just sized and sharpened. Noise reduction turned off in the camera and no noise reduction software used in processing.

First one is at ISO2000... the clean example to base the others on (can't believe I said that... :) )

Next one is ISO3200

WOW! those are great, not a pixel showing, you can hardly make any out at 6400, just amazing.

What's odd about these is that the noise seems to effect the bokeh more than the subject... not sure why, but I'm glad its not the other way around.

Mike I noticed the same thing, if anything I think it helps on the bokah. You really only notice at the 6400 ISO, pretty incredible.

wow mike, those are amazing. not that youd need it but, you can select the kids and do a local sharpen and then select the BG and run the noise removal in CS2 or3 and have an almost noise free image at ISO6400.. the bokeh is darker (exposurewise) than the players would be my guess Mike.

You guys can play if you want but there's no sense in it... I've already got the winning number. If you want, play though and it'll add a few bucks to my jackpot. Thanks!

Here's a 100% crop of one of the ISO6400 images... this is totally untouched other than cropping at 100%. No levels, no sharpening, no noise reduction, in the camera or in processing. This is a crop of a large JPEG.

Unbelievable. Sure proves you could print something the size of a house without any lose. Wonderful

Nice series of images & I'm impressed with the hi iso performace. Makes me think of selling the 1dII. . . I'm not using it anyway. Maybe in time for HS football season?
