Thank you zhangyue!
What about D850? Do you prefer it to D810?

I did process with Iridient Developer by "R L Deconvolution" mode (that we can find in RawTherapee and Piccure+) which can best respect IMHO the "natural" bokeh of the lens, compared to "Unsharp mask". Besides, as far as I know, Iridient Developer is the only one to correct distortion of Leica-R lenses thanks to LCP files of LR for Tiff files (if you want to use another RAW/DNG processor) while LR can only do it for DNG/RAW files!
For the color, it's a fantasy I did to look like slide effect..

Always a pleasure to see your pics. They are softlysharp as they should be.

Could you let me know the aperture, speed and ISO pls.

I am not a big fan of the D850 as most of my shots are vertical portrait orientation and hence the battery grip is always attached and it is a bit clunky.

However my main beef is with the focus point as it is always black v always red as in previous bodies. It only turns red when focus is acquired in low light conditions and it sucks as I loose the focus point location and the AF falls behind v the D3s - D4s - D5.

I am a very fast shooter and the D850 needs more relaxed type of shooters. However, the D850 shines mounted on a tripod.

I am in two mind in ditching it and getting instead a second D5.

I am also guilty of not posting here as I simply cannot afford time to shoot with my R lenses. Maybe in Feb when things quiet down.

Have you tried C1P. It is the only one I trust.

Yes, I did. But just tried! You are absolutely right anyway. I should work on it. One of my childhood friends who is a professional photographer only swears by Capture One Pro, since the beginning.
I am sure Capture One Pro is excellent, but I think RawTherapee, Iridient and some others softwares are very good too. The trick IMHO is to better control the software you use. I am afraid I don't...



Some thoughts about processing in another post:


I do not like LR for RAW Processing. Besides RAW process with Pentax files is worse than with Canon files. So I gave up using LR as a RAW processor. But I use it to catalog my files and for Plug-in third softwares, it's convenient.
I use DxO Prime for noise reduction (only) for (nearly) all my files and convert them to .dng files. Then I use other RAW/TIFF processors. RawTherapee, Piccure +, Iridient developer (and even LR) can process .dng files made by DxO Optics Pro (don't remember about Darktable). When converted to Tiff (for example processed in Piccure +), Iridient Developer is the only one which can fix lens distortion using LCP files for Tiff files (for my Leica-R lenses from LR) while LR itself is not able to make it (only for DNG/dng/RAW files).
Iridient Developer is a nice Raw Processor also. RawTherapee (since v5.3) is very convenient for Pixel Shift files (I just tried) but I do not use PS files for the moment. Piccure + is unreliable because of randomized results according to different files. Besides, target folders are very sensitive with pentax files, for example I used to push "lens rendering" at only between 3 and 7 (instead of 15) for not to have any artefacts... I do not really understand how it works, it's not repeatable for different pictures (different criterias/target folder results), it crashes with plug-in versions and processing is very slow compared to the others (although I have a modified MacPro 2009 hexacore W3680 with 48GB RAM and SSD, about two and half minutes to process). So I stopped Piccure+...
Iridient Developer, RawTherapee and Piccure+ use RL deconvolution, not LR.
Then I use Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 for my B&W process or Tonality CK I'm trying (made by the same team actually). I like very much Tonality CK because I can use masks and layers, I like very much Nik SEP2 for U-points. DxO team bought Nik collection and just created DxO Photolab, I hope it's a nice software rising the benefits of the two last ones (Tonality CK & Nik SEP2) at the same time... Let us see about it.
Capture One pro is an excellent RAW processor but I do not use it... Perhaps I should.

Last but not least, I think I am to buy Iridient thanks to distortion Leica-R lenses correction with Tiff files and because I like it very much working with it, very quick, very simple and very efficient. Best regards, teiki.

Another raw processor that uses deconvolution is Photo Ninja. As far as I am concerned, it beats all the other software mentioned in terms of the output that it produces, and I have used and tested them all (ACR, C1, DxO, Iridient, Raw Therapee.) PN is not a full-featured, integrated program, so it must be used in conjunction with other programs for DAM and post-conversion finishing. My only concern is that Photo Ninja is still on v.1, and I am dubious that there will ever be a v.2. Nevertheless, it is still delivers better results than any of the latest releases of other raw converters, IMO. Second best is Iridient.

Hi Rob,
you are right, I didn't mention this one because it's old... But I am not sure about the criteria: best in what way? It depends IMHO of a lot of parameters, am I wrong?

And you are right also. In my experience, Photo Ninja excels at showing fine detail and the separation of subtle differences in tone. Additionally, it can bring out detail in deep shadows without brightening the shadows to the point of killing global contrast. The resulting images have great presence and depth. PN's user interface is different from the most popular programs, but once you have gotten accustomed to it, editing is very fast. My workflow is Photo Mechanic (file ingestion and DAM) to Photo Ninja (basic editing and raw conversion) to On1 Photo (fine tuning and local adjustments). This multi-program approach is much simpler and smoother than many people would imagine, and the results are outstanding. I keep testing other programs as they are released, but I have yet to find anything that would make me switch.

My 50 Cron R (1984) arrived yesterday and I have been testing with the D850.

I really love the combination of the 50 Cron R as it is easy to focus and is really sharp at f/2.

Some low light evening shots at high ISO's.
