Do I have a noise problem with my NEX-6

Pete Peterson, whose opinions I respect, has commented on my NEX-6 that he thinks I have a noise issue. That bothers me. He may be right, because I tend to oversharpen till grain appears, a holdover from my film enlarging days.

I've uploaded some images for his analysis in another thread, but Pete is in the UK, so it's 1AM there. But thought perhaps others could see what they see.

A shot with my 85mm f1.2L, probably f5.6-8. Imported from RAW into Camera Raw, "auto" exposure clicked because I tend to underexpose to bring out sky (holdover from color film days). See noise?

Shot through a plate glass window with my Canon 24mm f2, probably f5.6-f8. Imported from RAW into Camera RAW and then converted (as above, forgot to mention) in Photoshop Elements 11, no adjustment

Shot with the 16-50PZ, as the EXIF shows. Again, RAW, opened in Camera RAW, converted in PS Elements 11 with no adjustment

Anyone see noise issues?
