A3 vs LR4

I have both A3 and LR4.  I use A3 99% of the time due to ease of use/etc.  The one thing that I will give LR the advantage on is noise reduction.  I use a plugin for Aperture called "noise ninja" that does a pretty good job, but it even isn't as good as the noise reduction built into Lightroom.  I very rarely shoot over ISO800, so its pretty rare that I have any real noise at all anyway.  On those rare occasions that I shoot at 1600 or 3200, LR4 does do a much better job at removing noise while preserving detail.
