D700 raw conversion challenge

Hi,

here is a real-life example of an ISO 6400 capture:

(16 MB)

Please show us the best you can get from it using your favorite RAW converting software and describe your process. Preferably show a web-size output image as well as a 1:1 crop of the faces.

I am hearing a lot of strong opinions about XYZ vs. ZYX converters, but most of the comparisons cannot be trusted as they are drawn by people fluent in only one of them. Also things quickly change, the software and cameras evolve very fast but people tend to stick to their first impression.

I thought this experiment could help me and many others to make a good choice. I am currently using LR and I am wondering if I it is really worth to bother with NX. I will publish my own result in a couple of hours.

Thanks for participating,
-TS
