I wanted to make the image brighter, especially the foreground. 5D3 sample needed triple the noise reduction in the bush. RAW files for these (raw3) posted here.

Hello, do you think you could post 100% crops from the bush/pole area with shadow lifting only, the same amount for both cameras? I know you provided RAWs for download but I have no software which can work with them, I shoot only JPEGs.

BTW how do you find the D600 kit lens? Is it usable? According to MTF graphs it should be pretty soft at wide end in corners, does it improve when you stop it down?

Here you go Stefan.

100% crop in LR.

D600 original.

D600 shadow lifted 100%

5D3 original

5D3 shadow lifted 100%

5D3 definitely looks uglier with vertical banding and more noise, although none is perfect.

D600 NR

5D3 NR

I don't think this much shadow lifting was needed for this scene and none is perfect. All sensors need to do better, Canon definitely does.
