Re: please tell me what I'm doing wrong!

I don't shoot jpeg normally, but I have read on several threads that you should have gradation set to off if you want to reduce noise.

on the 520 Normal is OFF, then you had HK, LK and Auto

I think it's the same on all models (that have the option)

I was going to mention it earlier, then retracted after I read

"I have gradation on normal, whole scene meter..."

It takes a bit of careful reading of threads sometimes to pick up all the details. It happens with me anyhow.
