Arrogant much, mate? You need to make things personal, eh?
My reply was to a claim that the SX40 has too much noise even at ISO 80. I replied by saying that my direct comparison with previous-gen DSLRs shows that the images on this current enthusiast camera are just as good as the ones coming from prosumer cameras of yesteryear. And that, specifically, includes noise.
If you have proper arguments (or, better yet - picture samples, histograms etc.), please refute what I'm saying. Otherwise, you just come across as a jerk.
