Not knocking the camera but there does seem to be a lot of noise for ISO400. I would have thought by today's standards there would be virtually no noise in this type of picture, well lit and in daylight. I wonder if the ACR processing was flawed and the algorithm needs a tweak or two ?

Not sure if it is a good idea with 36mp. It shows the limit of the lens resolving power. Lots of purple fringing, noise even at ISO 400 and I dare say not sharp, definately not sharp enough for cropping at full size. You think by having large mp it helps if you want to print big but not with fringing, noise and less sharpness which means you have to downsize to make it look decent so you might as well be shooting with a 12mp camera.
