Comparison DP3M vs dp3 Quattro

Ok, following on from the 'mushiness' postings in the waiting thread below, I decided to do some comparisons between the DP3 Merrill and the dp3 Quattro. These are non scientific comparisons but just real life and hand held. The conditions were bright but fog was incoming.

Also, I used Stilltion's settings for the Quattro which were max Crispy and min Noise.

The Merrill was also set to min noise. All shots were -1.0 Sharpness

Almost nothing changed in LR except a tiny bit of exposure.

My feeling is the Merrill photos are too crunchy but very detailed, eg, the dog's coat is better defined in the Merrill photo. The Quattro does benefit from Stilltion's settings, so, thanks for the suggestions.  But I still see 'mushiness' in the grass of the Quattro photos.

Best, Steve
