Fine little camera... with nice specs (lack of 4k video wouldn't bother me...)
Looking at higher iso shots, I'd be tempted to shoot with NR off- as the images still look good at mid-high iso settings- and with the resolution on offer, a reduction in image size will help also.
I wonder,can you drop the NR at the lower iso settings also...? Seems a tad high to me...
Can you track subjects via the viewfinder at the faster burst speeds...? 5fps would be nice at least...

Yes, you can use the different NR settings at lower ISOs. When I take the M&M man shots with the different Noise Reduction settings, I normally don't start until ISO 800, since that's typically when we start to see noise present itself within images; depending on the camera of course.

I sent a note to the reviewer on your second question. I'll report back when I hear from him.

Cheers!
