Thanks to everyone who has replied.

As for X3F tools, my issues were related to color casts and highlights. I believe I was one of the first "civilians" to use the tool and wrote a bit about about it early on. However, since then, I haven't messed with it. I just wasn't sure if there have been

updates or best practices?

Make sure you use the wrapper utility. It does two things, it tries to fix the color cast, and it gives you meta data.

The highlights problem is easily fixed by using the free adobe DNG converter (losslessly reencodes it). It has the added benefit that it compresses the DNG's better.

Make sure to replace the "opcodes" by the ones available under

(I made an embarrassing mistake for the ones that went into the official version; for the DP2M and DP3M they are all the same for all apertures, so will not work equally well for all apertures ...)

BTW, for Merrills it is better to use the 0.56 Beta 3 of X3F Wrapper than 0.57.
