It makes sense that the D80 would have more grain (noise) than the D70, because more pixels are crammed into the same space. But, has technology changed in these past 2 years to prevent this grain from being a factor?

Anyone know?

Well, the fact is that noise-wise the D50 is better than the D70. Then, from the samples people have been uploading on dpreview, the D80 looks better than the D50. Infact, it looks better than the 350D and the 400D. But that isn't saying much as D50 beat 350D noise-wise. But, you'll have to be patient and wait for some full reviews.

P.S. And, the nice thing about D80 (from the samples I've seen) is that the grain looks very similar to film grain (more pleasing to the eye) as opposed to 400D horrible-looking chroma-noise.
