Thanks for that Bert, that's a great site. I've seen these pages before but I couldn't find them when this thread came up. The output vs input intensity graph tells the story really well especially for astrophotographers. The 1D really shines at low light levels, but even the best film is plagued with poor signal-to-noise.

Check out the links too. There are examples with actual photos and extreme close-ups. And the pages on medium and large formats. You'd need 50 and 240 megapixels, respectively, to compete with the best film has to offer in these formats!
