I've attached an image I shot today, perhaps it's not the best sample image because of the low light and high ISO, but it seems like the lower-lit areas are just not as clear as they should be. I can provide other samples as well if it's helpful.

Think of it this way -- light is information. At 1/4000 sec exposure time you're getting very little data in the shadows -- there's practically nothing there to work with. At 37mm focal length you should be able to handhold that at 1/125th easily and you'd have 32 times more data in the shadows to work with.

Brilliant response! You can see the noise reduction artifacts clearly in the grass just to the right of the top of the waterfall - what Henry ("blue skies") would call a failure of the "fur test."
