I am new to Nikon and Lightroom. I just got my D200 the other day and downloaded the trial version of Lightroom 5.3 today.

I am totally amazed with its built in noise reduction!

I took 5 identical pictures, with same on the camera ttl flash lighting, at ISO 100, ISO 200, ISO 400, ISO 800 and ISO 1600; then imported all of them into Lightroom.

ISO 100-400 pictures looked about identical without zooming in. I could start seeing noise at 800 and it was really grainy at 1600.

Then I applied the NR and the 1600 becomes almost identical to the ISO 100 (without any zooming); with very subtle losses that weren't important to me.. it still stayed sharp at the focus point.

At a minimum I won't be affraid to shoot at iso 800 now since I'll have lightroom.

This is just one photo of a can with a background that wasn't that busy. Maybe for other photos there would be more loss of detail and unacceptable.. but at least for certain photos ISO 1600 can work quite well it seems!
