    This is not a RAW but a straight out of camera JPEG edited in PSP.

    Of course with higher ISO the heavy-handed in-camera noise reduction would make the JPEG unusable. I wish there was a way to completely turn it off.

    is true, as it could use a slow shutter speed to not use a high ISO and it works great, and even a bit PP, shots in ISO6400 may still be usable.I've tried using the kit in low, set up in mode HHT(hand held twilight), is appropriate for shooting in low light without a tripod, the shutter opens continuosly, so reduces the noise but the problems is t automatically uses an ISO6400.
    I have also made ​​some shots using HDR, and the noise is very low. I used this tips when i have the kit only in those moments, and don't have mi rokkor 50 f/1.4
