As a new X-E1 user, I agree with your statements. I have been testing extensively for the past 2 weeks and, yes, I noticed the issue with plastic skin at high ISOs and assumed it was an over application of NR. Not a big deal for me, I don't shoot concerts, etc. Obviously, for someone who does shoot these type of events, it may be a significant issue. I shoot primarily landscapes (high and low light) and have issues with processing the RAW files in LR5.3 as mentioned elsewhere. I'm spent out at the moment after acquiring the new system and have been trying some workarounds for this, such as doing basic RAW processing in LR, creating a TIFF, and using Elements 10 for sharpening and noise reduction (Noiseware Plugin) as needed. This does offer improvements in my opinion, but I still have issues. I was curious if using Silkpix as the RAW converter only might offer improvements. I have read conflicting opinions on this and I will try it out, but I was wondering what others on this thread think about it.
