Nikon D3100 Comparison of ISO 1600 3200 6400 & 12,800

One of the big things I'm curious about with my new Nikon D3100 is how the high ISO noise levels and image quality stack up.

Lightroom 3 doesn't support the D3100 files yet, so we're left with RAW conversions from ViewNX2 or jpgs straight out of the camera.

Still, even though I'm dying to see how Lightroom 3's new advanced noise reduction handles the Nikon D3100 RAW files, things are looking very good using ViewNX2 and OOC jpgs.

Here's some random shots from around the house to compare the D3100 high ISO noise at ISO 1600, 3200, 6400, and 12,800.
