Well, I shoot ISO 800 routinely and don't have noise problems, or take care of them in post-processing. I shoot handheld a lot and like the cushion of another stop of shutter speed. I have a 20d; I can't recall for sure but I thought the 400D had a similar sensor technology to the 20D. Or rather, even newer; doesn't the 350D have a similar sensor to the 20D? Anyway, I just disagree with Chris and others, there is no "noise issue" to my eye. At least none worth worrying about given the greater problem of shake while handheld. I rarely notice noise.

Now, when I use a tripod, of course I knock the ISO down.
