How does the D1H noise compare to other devices?

I saw the measured noise listed on dpreview in their review and it seems *spectacular*. Unfortunately the more recent reviews (D50 for example) use a slightly different method. But if they are similar then the D1H really outshines pretty much anything in the 200-1600 range. Even above, in 3200/6400 it seems *great*. I have a feeling that, while known to be very good, the tests are possibly not close enough to compare? Just a feeling. Then again, 2.74MP is in the D1H favour.

Any input is welcome.

The D1H easlily outperforms the D200 and D2H. Up to 1600 the noise is grain...past that the color noise comes out. Saturation and Sharpness is still great up to 1600.
