Various: I was surprised how well the noise removal worked with this image. With previous cameras, I disliked the results as far too "ironed". I will now use this software again. Thanks for your suggestion Chris.

Good one on ya mate!

Now I have got to say that the Olympus system is a force to be reckoned with 3200 ISO, WOW!
If you let Noise Ninja read the the EXIF data of your E-3 files to auto profile. You will find it can go a lot farther... I believe that with a firmware update that it can go to ISO 12800!!! Even if it's quite noisy at that level the noise that the E-3 produces is film grade quality.
Sometimes you want grungy shot full of noise.

Again just to get things straight:
D3=(Splotchy) Color Noise
E3= Luminance Noise (Pleasing to the Eye)
So for those who want to spend $5000+ for a D3 go ahead, I though want big Zuiko glass.

Quite clean indeed

Is this a 100% crop? Looks quite clean indeed.

crop factor/ focal length

> Is this a 100% crop? Looks quite clean indeed.

it is actually a 50% crop.

Also, I had the focal length wrong, it actually is 338mm (equivalent in 35mm).

While the house photographer was scrambling to take pictures with a huge N or C in the front rows, I comfortably sat in the last row, slightly elevated, shooting hand held shots with the 50-200 and the 14-54. of the 50 or so shots I made, 2 were blurry, the rest nice and sharp.

Could you perhaps post a 100% crop? Just to get an idea of the result you got.
