Too much NR for me. By ISO-1600, things were turning to mush.

Is this "mush" NR or JPEG compression artifacts? Those are two distinctly different things that many seem to confuse.

as Ed and mike said as well, its NR smearing or mush. unfortunately we cant turn off NR all the way, so we never get to see the quality of the jpeg engine above iso400. these guys cant tell the difference between jpeg artifacts, jpeg smearing and OOF so its almost impossible to have a logical debate. this is the main reason i only use the samples for noise comparisons bc noise will show even if the frame is OOF, that way theres no grey area for disagreement.
