Yes,

Lightroom is poor for managing noise/sharpness, and colors.

it's the best to revover highlight, and for the workflow

I bought photoninja for the A7, it's excellent for details, noise, color, generally good for highlights, fails sometimes though

it needs more tools, but update come quickly, can be integrated in lightroom

I'm sorry but I have to disagree. Lr5.3 has very powerful noise and sharpening tools but they take quite a bit of practice and knowledge to get the best out of them. There are some excellent tutorials online.

as a basic starting point setting for base iso try this for A7 files with landscape and architecture.

Clarity +10

Sharpening

amount 60

radius 0.7

detail 70

masking 25

Thanks! I had all but radius and masking the same - I always left them at default because I couldn't see their impact. I find playing with sharpness and luminescence to be valuable in managing noise without losing detail. Otherwise your settings are the same as mine.
