I didn't have problems with noise in my shots, they were with a 5D MkIII, no problems with a MkII either. That's what grad filters are for.

I like the shots you posted, which look like NDgrad at capture?..

When possible I'd rather apply ND grad in post.  The first sunset shot I posted used 2 mild ones applied in LR3 + fill light and +EV.

The other 2 shots have NO filters, capture or post, just color and contrast.  I was shooting fast, got about a dozen wicked images in about 2 minutes, various orientations, while also hand-holding my 60D which I used for about 50 shots over a longer period.  I can't wing an ND grad that fast if I wanted to.  The 60D's shots all look great too, no need to push any shadows all the time.

That first shot tho - I know no way in hades my 5D2 could do that. It's too noisy.  Push 2 EV with it and it's already showing plaid shadows.

Thanks. Yep, they were with two 3 stop grads (some were probably less).

I took this one on a drive back to Z├╝rich from a weekend up in the alps. The lake is the Vierwaldst├Ąttersee.
The second one I took just a few minutes away from my house

@Aglet - from what?  ;D I mean the first "from"
...
I can't do this kind of shot with my Canon gear without running into serious noise problems in the darker areas. My 7D and 5D2 are terrible at this kind of work. 5D3 isn't much better than 5D2 from my limited testing.  Hopefully a few FF body from Canon with improve this.
...
+1.  I am less than impressed with the noise on my 5DIII. I find the 22mpx enough for me, but expected far better low noise performance. Using Topaz denoise doesn't help much either. OTOH the problem is probably behind the Camera.
Cheers

Taken along Hwy 78, west of the Salton Sea, CA using a Canon 5D Mark III, with only very slight brightness & contrast adjustments made in Lightroom.
