I wonder where that relatively high noise on the LT3042 might hide.


That is maybe 3 nV/RT Hz at 10 Hz, and the limit is probably not the 
LT3042 but
the GR-like noise of my old preamp below 30 Hz. (rises faster than 1/f)
Remember that 0 dB in the plot is 1 nV rt Hz, which is the equivalent 
INPUT noise voltage
of an AD797 or LT1028.

The LT4042 measurement was taken from an ugly dead bug ad-hoc construction.
Deviating from the 4.7u output cap produces some noise peaks @ > 100 KHz.
(but still 30 dB better than the others)
More is less here.
