I don't see anything wrong with these images. For crying out loud! 6400 ISO and such nice results? What do you all expect anyway? Try doing this with a Nikon D1 or D1X from 10 years ago. It's amazing what quality you can get from high ISO images with not only the D7100 but the D7000. But then when you came from a film background and used to shoot Tri-X pushed to 1600, grain is no big deal.

I agree, but something is up with these.  But I have been thinking that same way recently.  I have a bunch of photos on my HD that I've thought are either too noisy, or this or that and my daughter is putting together a scrapbook of dance photos and took a bunch and printed them out at CVS.  I had no idea and would have spent time cropping, etc.  While they are small prints, they look great  as they are.
