    I only had the 40D and a kit lens left after selling most of my gear and waiting for some equipment to come in.
    The lens did okay, thanks for spot metering and ISO 3200!
    Geez, I've been afraid to try ISO 3200 on my 40D, but that looks better than ISO800 was on my Sony. Did you use in camera NR? And what in PP NR?

    I love the composition on that. That is what a photo of a standup comedian should look like.

    I didn't do any noise reduction in CS4, the 100% crop looked fine.
    Let me check my camera to see if NR is on......
    It's set to auto, so I don't know if it was used. Likely it was.
    I did see some banding before I upped the black level to 4, but it was nothing compared to the 30D ISO 3200 banding I would get.

    Thanks, Jason for your compliment.
    I'd like to get a tighter crop, but I'd hit the elbow or the mic stand on the other side.
    I guess I could photoshop the mic stand closer, then crop.

    So far I'm loving the 40D.
    I see no reason to ever get the 50D, I'll be patient and see what the 60D brings.

    I've found that the in-camera NR in the 40D is actually quite good.

    Lay, I wouldn't be afraid of ISO3200, the 40D's noise levels are quite manageable as long as you do your part and nail the exposure

    This was my first ISO3200 test when i got the 40D, shot in JPG with auto NR, no editing, uploaded straight to the interwebs:


    You can clearly see the noise and a bit of banding, but increasing the black point a hair would squeeze out a little bit of the noise and viewing this image in a slightly smaller size squeezes out the rest. Not to mention Post Processing Noise Reduction could make it cleaner...

    I would avoid 3200 if possible, but at the same time, i have no problem using it if I've exhausted other options first...

    I get rid of chroma noise easily by duplicating the layer, then noise>median 10-20, then set layer to color.
    This immediately gets rid of the red chroma splotches and does nothing to soften the image.
    If there is red in the image, you may have to adjust the strength of the median filter.

    Wait, i just tried duplicating layer, then went ti filter, noise and median... i adjusted it to 10 pixals and it made the image all blurry- and the last step "Set layer to color" doesn't make sense to me :P I am using elements btw.

    The duplicated layer will become blurred, that's expected.
    Then, in your layer palette window, with the blurred layer selected, choose Color, instead of Normal for the blending method.

    Here is a quick example:

    LOL, that bird has a confused look on his face.
    Maybe your's is the first lens he's seen.
