Noise Reduction On or Off?

I am beginning to think off for 1600 and under in order to maximize detail.

Here is a shot @2.8 a little dark and noise reduction off . I forgot to say 1600 ISO.

Re: Noise Reduction On or Off?

Noise tends to lurk in the shadows but even NR= OFF does a little noise reduction or at least there was a debate about that here a while back.  I would do a little NR at ISO 1600 if I thought I would need to pull up some shadow areas later.  Personal preference though.  Printing can fix some noise in a shot.
