Wow...I don't know how to begin..

OK - so in general if you are shooting at -2 to -3 EV, and then try to lift the shadows (and some hi-lights) within a RAW converter - that could become a pretty tall order.

I personally don't use DPP, although I have it installed (I'm a software freak, can't help it).  If I shot the way you did, even in Lightroom I'd most likely have issues bringing up the shadows without running out of slider room (or with the noise involved at that low an EV offset).

And why are you shooting at F22 (that is, with the M5)?  Diffraction at that point would take a huge toll on your sharpness levels, I would imagine.
