What's the prevailing opinion on the best way to remove noise? I hear good things about Topaz Denoise AI, but some say that Lightroom does a good enough job (i have 5.7 and LR classic CC).

Opinions?

It is very camera (sensor) dependent. Try it on your shots.

On the latest Canon 90D, and on the previous 80D, I tend to use Lightroom by itself  up to about ISO 400, For higher ISOs on good shots,  I will generally apply LR noise reduction at levels I would use for 100-400 ISO, and then Topaz Denoise AI on top of that.

I will sometimes use Topaz even on low ISO shots to put extra polish on the sky and larger area smooth backgrounds.
