Strange

I've been looking through a lot of D300 threads lately as I'm considering buying one to replace my D80. I downloaded the ISO 1600 NEF file. The only program I have that can read the D300 NEF's is the free ViewNX.

I opened the NEF and it said, High ISO NR On, and it showed me an image with much less noise but some lack of detail. I saved it as jpg, highest quality. Did absolutely no PP on the image.

Question is. Does ViewNX automatically remove noise? I was not able to turn it off.

Here's 100% crop.
