nikon D3S - a NOlight master?

I have read about some tests in international magazines and they all agree on one thing:
The new D3S is a monster of darkness.. This camera is a beast for paparazzis, sport photographers, F1 journalists and most probably-spies :)

It has a -wow- 102.400 ISO limit, still with nikon's unexplainable method of h2.0 indication on the screen.

Just to remind what does 102.400 ISO means:
ISO 25 - Non of todays D-SLR's offer this speed. Need film or special production cameras.
ISO 50 - Some Canon's have it, but nikons have the same sharpness at higher ISO's with faster shutter speeds.
ISO 100 - Everybody is familiar with it. New nikon's with CMOS sensors indicate lo.1
ISO 200 - My studio speed
ISO 400 - Who see any differance between ISO200 and 400 on D300,D700 or D3 series?
ISO 800 - perfect for street candids, indoor shoots
ISO 1600 - superb results at nights witha little light, no noise on new cmos series of nikon.
ISO 3200 - this is the point where D300 and D90 meets with remarkable noise
ISO 6400 - it was a dream in 70's
ISO 12800 - who, what??
ISO 25600 - NASA used it..
ISO 51200 - is it the peak?
ISO 102400 - wooww, where is Canon, i can not see it? Too high here :D . 10 stops of differance between ISO100 and that. That means: If you were at ISO100 (or lo.1 at most new nikons) and Aperture priority, if you read 2 seconds, you need a good tripod to fix you on earth surface, but, when you set ISO to 102.400, you will have an amazing 1/500 seconds in the same light conditions, which means you can shoot while running..
