Noise and DR can be improved with careful filtering of light - you can not replicate that in software. Relying on NR reduces detail; it's not the same thing.

Actually you can do it much cleaner and better with Software digitally now than with optical filters. Read the article I linked then try it with today's products. It really is better to do it digitally..... except perhaps in very specific cases when long exposure at base ISO is possible.
