Re: lack of punch

Uploaded some more scenes. 13 and 14. 14 is especially punishing for the sensor i believe (patchy snow mountain top + small trees)

I believe this concludes the testing for me. X-A3 behaves much better than XP2 with Lightroom.

Since a few days ago, I now look at those images on a 4K display, and on it all the XP2 images I develop with Lightroom have a distinctive lack of "punch". And I can't add it as I normally would as it immediately sparks painterly artefacts.The X-A3 and A6000 do not show this. This is not only a landscape thing: for portrait, eyelashes rendering gets mushy and undefined.

It seems to me this "lack of punch" is the result of slightly lower color saturation.

Do you think it's something else?
