What's wrong with the Quattro
5 months ago

can be seen in another comparison to the DP2 Merrill.

Same scene, roughly same time of day, a month apart. Apart from a small X3F and exposure increase no other adjustments to the DP2 Q in SPP - noise reduction sliders in the leftmost position. Finally USM with 100% and radius 1 applied (same as to the DP2 Merrill shot). No further colour corrections.

DP2 Merrill:

There is no issue caused by atmospheric conditions - look at the lower left corner and the white buildings in the distance.

The rendering of the Quattro (or lack of) of the trees in the distance is plain wrong (and ugly) - this also shows very clearly in an A3+ print, unfortunately.

To me it looks that the Quattro in its current iteration is a 'two-headed beast' - capable of producing stunning pictures (Wesley Wong has shown what the DP2 Quattro is capable of) and then a plain failure when it comes to simple landscape pictures as in the examples above.
