With the latest sensors, some have been proclaiming it's better to shoot at base ISO and increase brightness in post rather than increase ISO in camera.

I would like to see some examples of this. Are there any examples where increasing brightness in post delivers better IQ than increasing ISO in camera? And please, disable all NR settings.

Here's a comparative example from Pierre Sottas comparing the same exposure made at ISO 100 and ISO 6400. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/36903045 Note the difference in how the highlights have been captured.
