Without much ado, I present you an image taken with a new Canon 5D MkII shot at 25,600 ISO. I was lit by the screen of my LCD television. That's it. The light behind me was from a CFL bulb equivalent of a 40-watt tungsten bulb. The exposure was f2.8 @ 250th/sec. Pretty freakin' amazing.
Full disclosure: Even with this incredible technology there is noise at this extreme ISO range so I applied Noise Ninja to the image. But no other adjustments to exposure like using levels or curves.
