Re: which would be the best raw processor for the XE-1?

I am using the bundled software Silkypix version 3xxx

I open the the image in Silkypix default settings nothing changed except under sharpening I select MAX Demosaic, then in development parameters I leave everything as default and then increase unsharp mask to 100% (max is 500%). then I export to TIF and import to Lightroom.  Silkypix can do this as batch as well. Very fast and simple.

The comparison image as requested I did 100 % crop of 3 images.

left to right - Image 1 left is JPEG OOC, Image 2 center is RAF to TIF as described and adjusted exposure etc in LR (NO SHARPENING in LR), Image 3 right is the RAF file developed straight in Lightroom.

Now I will do a side by side comparison with the C1 conversion done by DPReview and my middle image from above which is the Silkypix to tif to Lightroom.  In my opinion this easy process using the software that came with the camera beats Capture one. Capture one does look good. You be the judge.

Thoughts? Opinions?
