The trends are evident not just in pro DSLRs but in advanced-enthusiast models we've tested recently. (For the relevant specs and our Certified Test Results for all of the DSLRs in the $1,000-2,000 range we've tested since last autumn, see the table on page 72.) Take, for example, the 10.1MP Canon EOS 40D ($1,140, street, body only). Its ISO range stretches to 3200, image quality for RAW files (converted to 16-bit TIFF) is Excellent up to ISO 1600 and Extremely High at ISO 3200, where noise tops out at Moderate. Indeed, the 40D produces about as little noise at ISO 800 as its grandparent, the 8.2MP Canon EOS 20D (tested in our January 2005 issue), did at ISO 200 -- and with far greater resolution.
