Noise is extremely well controlled in this ISO 3200 image. There's only a hint of luminance noise in the background visible at 100% on screen in this shot which was taken with the high ISO noise reduction setting set to its default 'Standard' setting.

This JPEG image was captured at the same time as the raw file below, note the higher contrast which results in the loss of some detail in the shirt as the dark gradation is compressed.

Shot at ISO 25,600, noise is controlled well for such a high sensitivity. Examining the image at 100% reveals chroma and luminance noise, but the image looks great at printing and web sizes.

This image shows the extreme sensitivities the Canon EOS 1DX can reach and was shot at ISO Hi2. Obviously the image degradation is severe, but it's also important to remember that this was shot in near dark conditions.
