Why? You move a little slider in Lightroom and the chroma noise vanishes into thin air.
...leaving what in its place? NR is the replacement of noise with "alternative data"...best guess from adjacent pixels. Detail capture remains the same. So, yes, chroma noise does count.

Tripods don't work with documentary photography, street, sports, wildlife, in nightclubs and bars, portraiture
??????

Granted, tripods are rare for club and street work, but not exactly uncommon for professional wildlife and sports and extremely common for portraits, glamour, fashion, and fine art nudes.

I think he was saying that it's not replacing high shutter speed (i.e. high iso) for sport and wildlife.

Comparing the KP to the K-70 at 51200 I don't see a difference. Left is KP
You don't? I took a look at the comparometer with my 5K screen and think the KP is clearly superior to the K-70. The KP is less "murky" and e.g. shows significantly more of the details on the labels of the bottles. I then tried ISO102400 on the KP against 51200 on the K-70, and then the K-70 won by a small margin. So my guess is that the KP wins over the K-70 at very high ISO by 1/2 to 2/3 stops.

Just to show that there is a noise reduction applied by the camera, even on raw files
Some degree of FFT filtering is applied to the files but do not forget there are substantial differences in architecture when comparing the Pentax K10D's CCD sensor and the CMOS sensor used in the KP.

Yes, may have been less than clear, but I was rather talking about a substitute for fast shutter speeds. Of course tripods are used in the studio, for wildlife etc., but not in the sense of using them for long exposures.

when you scale back to an acceptable level (which is pretty small at 51200) the difference is negligible. The K-70 maybe even be equal with the latest firmware. There probably isn't a real difference in hardware.

It works well for sports and wildlife, portraiture at least pro use them for that.

Where I agree with you is that a tripod is a pain to use, but it more usefull that one might think and if you are open to monopod, it actually apply to even more situations.
