  • Thanks for your kind words. Very much appreciated. Andreas
  • You are of course right that PSE is a stripped down version of Photoshop. But the OP didn't ask for " the ultimate solution " but for an entrance into RAW processing. And the " dedicated raw developer
  • Using PSE for three years now with very good success I'd recommend the following settings on the "Detail" page: Sharpening: Amount: 60, Radius 1.0, Detail: 40, Masking: 20 Noise reduction: Luminanc ...
  • Hello Michael, the reason for this test was to demonstrate the ISO potential of the D-Lux. Your thread clearly did show the better result from the CL at ISO1600. Apparently the smaller sensor is at ...
  • Motivated by the recent "CL vs D-Lux" ISO1600 comparison https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60451191 I did a little test comparing ISO400 to ISO1600 test plate images with either ACR default ...
  • Hello Michael, you are of course right with your "apple vs oranges" statement. The CL is a noticeable step-up from the D-Lux in every regard. But also in dimensions particularly if paired with the ...
  • I don't question the superiority of the CL over the D-Lux. The upper crop comparison clearly shows the lower noise of the CL. But at 27mm (FF) the D-Lux has an aperture of f/2.0 which would allow ...
  • Interesting again. But I don't want to hijack your discussion about Leica cams. Just a final word: your observation of details with better seeing is spot on. Differences between good and top notch ...
  • Interesting I can't post a picture because I don't do astronomical photography. From your CN activity I see that you are very active in this field thus having much experience which I'm lacking. But ...
  • May I ask what telescope you are using with auto focus? My apochromatic refractor TEC140 with its Starlight focuser is of course only useful with carful manual focusing. And using it with the Leica ...
  • My comment was rather directed to Jon Schick who's mentioning of software correction for the D-Lux lens (" And good as it is, this model with software corrected lens is not really the same ...
  • Leica of course makes use of software corrections for its lenses. It would be strange if they would not use this tool. Therefore, the term "software correction" for lenses is just stating ...
  • Well Irakly, I'm not kidding myself :-) . It would be ridiculous to expect similar results from the D-Lux as with a 10.000 Euro combination like the SL plus 24-90 Vario-Elmarit-SL. This combo is ...
  • The D-Lux lens is in fact designed by Leica though manufactured by Panasonic. Also part of the data processing right off the sensor is contributed by Leica. Therefore, it's not unreasonable to ...
  • Same here. Particularly the image stabilization is a very important advantage for low light shots. The gain is about three EVs with the D-Lux and it enables in most situations hand held shots. 1/13 ...
  • Well done! This image impressively demonstrates one of the highlights of the LX100/D-Lux: hand held low-light images without flash which are difficult or even impossible to shoot with other cams. ...
  • It's easy: just mark both images (with holding the "control"-key, the JPG and also the RAW), then right-click onto one of the marked images, then "delete". That's all. Although the depicted ...
  • Very attractive camera and extremely well presented by Jono. The price is acceptable as well. The only serious con is the missing image stabilization within the body and also within the lenses. ...
  • Of course not. When I ordered the D-Lux in November 2014 I did not expect something like a real Leica. Not only because it is a rebranded Panasonic LX100 but mainly due to the design with a fast ...
  • May I ask how much personal experience you have with the LX100? My experience with the D-Lux (aka LX100) after three years continuous use is very much different: quite useful lens, 12 MP sufficient ...
