Resized the D800 to a 16 Mp resolution and than applied NR, sharpening, contrast and saturation to both. The D4 NEF file is easier to clean up for sure. But with a little effort on the D800 file I don't see much difference between the remaining noise patterns of the D4 and the D800 version. I would have expected something completely different! Actually, I'm very,very suprized by the options the D800 provides to reduce noise.

If you take the iso 25600 NEF with your daughter and run it through NX2, how does it behave in terms of noise handling if you put the Hi so noise reduction at low? How much better does it get in the jpg? I've only handled NEF files from a D3s in CS5 .You seem to know the D3s well. My gutt feeling tells me the D3s hi iso jpegs up to iso 25600 were cleaner and came out with better details.lock PS I can't check the NX2 effect myself because I decided against NX2 in favor of CS5
