Re: Yes it does

I did some more playing with the files. Starting with this image (ISO 3200):

...that's the default conversion from Raw Therapee. Of course the colors stink since it doesn't honor Nikon's 'Picture Style' setting like Capture NX2 will. So I took the JPG conversion and ran it through Lightroom (which is the next image in the gallery), making the colors like I wanted them and bumping up the black point, etc. I didn't do any noise reduction though. Finally, I used the same JPG file and applied some mild noise reduction in Lightroom. I think it looks really good. Really good for that small sensor.

The ISO 3200 examples:

Same JPG as link above but with color changes, levels changes, etc:
