As I prepare my flame retardant suit-X-trans is fine-the problem is Adobe!
In the interest of full disclosure-I despise Lightroom!

That's great to hear. Remember that the place where I started (e.g., Noise 50) was just that -- starting point. Some require more, some less (and some people prefer more or less).

Noise can be a real issue, but this thread reminds me of a few important facts:

1. ALL digital photographs have at least some noise. Often it isn't visible or it is very mild, but it is always there. A perfect, noise-free digital image does not exist.

2. Some (barely) visible noise in a photograph is not necessarily a bad thing. (In fact, some photographers intentionally add noise to images in certain cases. I won't go into detail here.)

3. Most excessive noise can be minimized using basic post-processing techniques, to the extent that it doesn't compromise the image.

4. Quite often when people say that they have a "noise problem" (with their camera, in post-processing, etc.) there is a very good chance that they could resolve it by applying some techniques that they just haven't yet learned about.

Some photographers add "Grain" to their black and white images to give them that Tri-X feeling... Perhaps there are tools that can do it better than Lightroom, but i have a hard time telling the difference between noise and grain. It's not something I do but, as usual, to each his or her own.

But yes, noise is yet another thing that can be obsessed about too much. As in so many cases, there's nothing like stepping back and looking at actual prints to judge whether or not the noise you're seeing at 1:1 is actually a problem.
