A lot better.Theres noise as you say, but it has less digital
look.Even the ACR has this kind of effect.I use NX for my Nikon and
it produces this noise also, but yet its better than the digital look
that ACR( as this Silkpix, but not so evident):

i looked at your images and this is exactly the same problem i have with ACR.

you know that adobe introduced this ugly noise-reduction effect not so long ago, i thnk with version 4.0

before ACR was rendering quite detailed images, tough a bit noisy. but then they decided to build in an internal noise reduction algorithm that you cannot turn off anymore. my LX1 pictures became really ugly, therefore i stopped using ACR.

i don't mind grain if it is looking natural. i hate noise-reduction artifacts or strange noise-patterns.

i am not sure what is wrong with my lens but i discover this problem now on more of my images, especially at tele there is some serious corner smearing. i hope this is only an exception, but my old LX1 has a similar problem, therefore i am afraid that these great "leica" lenses are not that great at all
