I like your
settings-- do they also keep the noise low to moderate at 400-1600?
Or do you find the grain distracting at higher isos?

I forgot to answer this part of your question. Only time I find grain/noise/banding an issue with the 520 is in low light, at ISO 1600 and sometimes ISO 800 when I underexpose by mistake. That's why I switch to normal gradation in low/artificial light. There is very little latitude for bringing up shadows in PP at high ISO with the E-520. You'll get a lot of noise and even banding if you try raising the shadows more than about 0.7 - 1.0 EV in these situations.
