if its good enough, still need neatimage?
I mean, I find neatimage making my pics abit softer..prefer not to use it.. even in ISO1600..

i usually use neatimage on images with a dominant colour. I don't find NI making the image softer. Again, sharpness is a relative thing. My tolerance for softness is very high.
Never cared about noise when I convert to B/W or desaturate my photos.
Now with NI, I can shoot with auto ISO and can de-noise if needed.
Your mileage may differ.

the original un-NIed image is good enuff for me. looks like D70's noise control iso1600 is pretty darned good.

Actually, i don't see noise in the original image. Should be able to print up to 5R with no impact on noise (coz printing itself would have "noise").
