Has anyone actually done a comparison between LR4 and other NR programs. I have LR4 and it is good, but wonder if others would be an improvement. This would be for the Nex 7.

I use LR4 as well as Capture one 7, both have their strong points but regarding noise reduction is LR the winner.

Remark that LR by default sets the luminance NR to 0. A value between 18 and 24 gives for high ISO use very good results.

I don´t like the DXO converter, user interface is very weak , it´s a very slow program, and the image quality is not as good.

LR default settings are very conservative but you can easily change this via the presets.

I have used Dfine in the past but I found the added value to low starting from LR3.
