So these are the kind of photos that I've been taking lately that I like. I ultimately always want more detail, especially in situations like my cat and her fur. Noise isn't so much an issue I guess when shooting in raw and using lightroom to denoise, but I wish I didn't have to lose detail as trade off.

I use NEX-3. Even with its older 14 MP sensor, I don't feel the need to be overly aggressive on NR (and sharpness). Sometimes I just prefer a light grain with details. Here are some images, similar subjects to yours:

NEX-3, Sony 135mm f/2.8 STF, ISO 200, f/5, 1/250s

NEX-3 w/Contax Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 Planar, ISO 800, f/1.7, 1/30s

NEX-3 w/Contax Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 Planar, ISO 1600, f/1.7, 1/20s

NEX-3 w/Sony 135mm f/2.8 STF, ISO 320, f/4.5, 1/250s

NEX-3 w/Sony 135mm f/2.8 STF, ISO 200, 1/500s, f/5.6

And this...

NEX-3 w/Minolta 200mm f/2.8 HS, ISO 800, f/2.8, 1/640s

NEX-3 w/Contax Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 Planar, ISO 400, f/2, 1/500s

Jesus those are incredible looking photos. The glass you carry is pretty nice too. Maybe I need to invest in better lenses. Right now all I have is a sal50f14, sigma 70-300, and the nex6 kit lens.
