I find myself preferring image B. The fine detail in that image looks more realistic, even though I do see traces of color noise. Somehow, the noise in image A feels heavier. (I'm guessing that the difference between A and B is mainly due to noise reduction algorithms?)

1) Image A or B?

C is slightly better than D in my opinion, although in well lit areas the difference is not obvious.
However, I'm having a hard time deciding between C and E.

C seems a little noisier, but E has rougher grain. In the end, I'll take either C or E happily - there's practically no difference in terms of detail retention. I might see it a difference on a second look, but for now, I'll say that C and E are pretty much equal.

2) Image C, D or E?
