Noise

When shooting in low light at high sensitivities such as ISO 3200, there's a decent amount of detail kept, while noise appears to be fairly low when viewing at normal printing and web sizes. If you examine at 100%, you can see a bit more noise, but it's generally kept to a minimum. Click here for the full resolution image.
