I think high ISO noise in the D7000 is remarkably well controlled in properly exposed images. Depending on the intended use and enlargement, I take shots up to 3200 ISO without additional noise reduction. If I do apply additional noise reduction I use Topaz Denoise.


My stepson had a birthday party in a bowling alley this year. I was just taking family snapshots with the D7000. This one was at ISO 3200 - converted from raw just using ViewNX - didn't even take it into NX2 (I normally use Aperture but used the Nikon software on this example).

This one was taken at ISO 1600 and converted with Aperture. I just used the noise reduction in Aperture at .83 and didn't feel it was necessary to use Topaz Denoise. I routinely shoot at ISO 1600 with long lenses unless I am taking pictures of birds with white plumage and want to maximize dynamic range - then I will keep the ISO around 400 or lower if I can get the shutter speed I need.
