LOL! Yes, Atomic, you did say so!
My first thought when I saw the noise was of you!
I took about 200 shots on Saturday ago ranging from ISO100 to ISO1000 mostly in the "vivid" setting, noise reduction on low, and sharpness +1. I was pixel peeping at 100%, but that's how I normally look at images to determine how good (or bad) they came out. Reduced the images to monitor size (or print size on 8x10"), and I couldn't see the noise. Irony is that I also took photos a weekend ago with the E-410, and pixel peeping at ISO800 under poor lighting wasn't all that bad.
Took another 100 shots on Sunday primarily on ISO100 and 200. Set it on "natural", noise reduction on standard, and sharpness +1. Not as bad as the first day as I limited the ISO. Images were much softer though. I did take a couple of ISO400 photos on the second day that were somewhat more acceptable than the first day.
I'm going to take some indoor shots in the house today with the E620 and E510 both using the 14-42, and post them up.
