You are welcome. However, in certain images you will still see a watercolor effect. In that case use Silkypix to export tiff or y444 jpg with demosaic at max and export option unsharp mask at 100%. I was able to match if not beat the c1 image from dpreview samples of the trolley. I will post the results from that if asked. I agree with another member that mentioned dpreview did not also co.pare Silkypix output i the comparisons. Easy to export tk tif and do the editing in lightroom or photoshop with excellent results.

Typing from my phone is causing typos.

Excellent to mention Unsharp Mask. The details of Unsharp Mask settings (amount, radius and threshold) are too often overlooked, but nonetheless very important when comparing images apples-to-apples. Sometimes when a JPEG from a RAW file appears soft or lacks fine detail the cause is an Unsharp Mask setting and not the RAW file converter software.

I'd like to see your results from RFC-EX (Silkypix)...
