  • Well, for starters, there's the lens. Also, the body of the Q is supposedly a Leica product. The sensor will always be outsourced, as Leica does not manufacture sensors. Not many camera ...
  • No, you re-read the thread. No one claims that M lenses are better on an SL except for greater ease and accuracy of focusing. OTOH, no one says that M lenses are worse on an SL. I take that to ...
  • What makes you think that it is difficult?  You are the one making ad hominem arguments. I am finished here.
  • I have been extremely pleased with Aurora HDR 2019. It works on raw files, performs perfect auto-alignment every time, and completely eliminates ghosting even when there is gross subject movement. ...
  • This is wrong. There are plenty of scenes where even the best sensor cannot record detail in the full range of brightness, especially in the highlights. Try this in a scene with very bright ...
  • Excuse me, but the people who responded to the Leica Forum thread were speaking from their first-hand experience, just as you are speaking from yours in this thread. The point (which you seem to be ...
  • Well, not everyone agrees that there is a significant difference in performance. Here is a thread that I started on the subject at the Leica Camera Forum. You can read the responses from ...
  • I have been using On1 for several years and am now on On1 PR 2019. As much as I like the software, I must confess to being disappointed in its NR capabilities. When I encounter an image with even ...
  • There are plenty of people who own both a Leica digital M and an SL who report comparable performance of M lenses on both cameras. Rob
  • I used the AI mask for a simple task, and it worked as advertised. I will leave it to others to test it more seriously.
  • Nor have I. It must be something specific to Larry's setup.
  • I just downloaded a trial version of X4 to use on my MacPro (late 2013). The output seems quite good, but the program operates rather slowly. Rendering images takes several seconds after ...
  • Yes and no. The holy grail implies a single ultimate target beyond which nothing better is possible. With technology (cameras and lenses included), there is no such thing as ultimate, as constant ...
  • Vieri, I just looked at your website, which contains many fine images. Continue creating images that have meaning for you, and use whatever camera best suits your purpose. Rob
  • Replied in On1 RAW 2019
    The software is hugely improved in so many ways since 2017. I suggest downloading a free trial version and deciding for yourself if the upgrade is worth your while.
  • I am a big fan of On1 Photo RAW 2019, a program that can do just about anything you could want from an image editor--file ingestion, DAM, raw conversion, lens corrections, stylizing, local edits, ...
  • fPrime, I think that you would be better off not examining your photos a 200% and "discovering" things that may or may not be real and which, in any case, do not affect the photo at normal viewing ...
  • Replied in On1 RAW 2019
    I am not aware of an auto fringe reduction feature in ON1. Can you show us some documentation? There are manual fringe reduction sliders in Develop>Lens correction. Rob
  • Here is my version from On1. With all due respect, I think that it shows far more shadow detail than the one from LR, and the WB is more neutral as well. No color adjustments, NR, sharpening etc. ...
  • Replied in On1 RAW 2019
    fPrime, thanks for making the raw file available. I ran it through On1 PR 2019 as I would any of my own images, aiming for a natural appearance. The only adjustments I made were mild boosts in ...
