Personally i think it looks amazing, The slight ISO noise seems to be a positive quality in itself!

Amazing, Akhan. ISO speeds that high with such a clean result, is quite incredible. You must be very pleased! :)

Very Impressive at that ISO. I will have to try cranking it up.

Wow akhan that's a great shot considering the iso setting. I haven't tried that high of a setting yet on the 7D.

That turned out great!
The 7D is funny sometimes with ISO depending on the subject and bg.
I've shot some with mine at 500 that ended up looking like bad surveilance photography.

Outstanding, Akhan, and I do not see the high ISO as being a problem. It looks very clean. I recently took some ISO 12800 images using my 7D with equally good results, but proper exposure is very critical. If the image is underexposed, the noise really increases in post processing. I have found that it is better to slightly overexpose the image and then do the equivalent of film "pull processing" by reducing the exposure in post processing. This helps to reduce noise considerably. Another tool that is great for working with high ISO images is the latest version of ACR (6.1) that is used in theCS5 suite.

It's all relative. Looks like about ASA/ISO 400 speed film from the old days. Good stuff.

I'd like to see the rest of the EXIF. While it looks much better than other cameras could achieve at the same ISO or even less, it's still not high quality, compared to one shot in better light at much lower ISO. Shooting at this high ISO means your automatically losing a lot of detail. :)
