This is a greatly exaggerated issue,

In fact, your posted examples show exactly how real this issue is.

IMHO, that only really becomes noticeable at ISO 6400.

uh...as everyone else has been saying.

It can be mitigated by setting NR to -2, Sharpness -2. Yes, I wish there was a lower NR number. Honestly, most people prefer the "waxy" look to what their real skin looks like.

Most people prefer waxy, fake looking skin?  Now THAT is some serious spin.

I have posted selfies to demonstrate how much settings make a difference and how it does not effect RAW's. Most professionals will shoot RAW at high ISO's so it is even less of an issue. I can remember when no one would consider trying to sell a picture shot at ISO 6400. Now we get pretty darn good results. Amazing, if you ask me.

Amazing if you like fake wax figures.
