    I've always liked Capture one. When the budget allows, I'll probably get this. My trial version has expired.

    Good list.
    I haven't had any issues either. This may be because of what (and how) I shoot. it's not that I don't agree that issues exist, but for me paying $299 is not likely to improve my photographs. In any case I need to work a little more on what goes in to the camera.

    I also feel Adobe will evolve their processing, especially with 3 cameras using this sensor.

    As an aside, I enjoy the Handcarry blog. Some really nice stuff there.

    :smile: I might also add, I think there is a distinct difference with the way those individuals for example (and others) are viewing photography and a large number of people who regularly post on DPR. I would have to go with the former in that I'm not sure to me it's about the 100% crops of leaves and it's more about aesthetic qualities which are subjective.

    LR/PS apply lens corrections without the option to turn them off, C1 (and some others) give you the ability to reduce or remove these corrections. Lens distortion corrections, while straightening out lines, also result in blurred edges.

    I played with C1 7.0.2 beta specifically to see if the software did a better job with RAF files than LR/PS did. That was the only goal. As a longtime PS user I had no real intention in moving away from LR/PS. After using C1 for a period of time I came to the conclusion C1 + PS is the a much better solution than LR + PS. While C1 and LR are aligned in price, C1 is a much more powerful tool. This was most noticeable when I went from using C1 back to LR. In retrospect, LR seems......toy-like? It is hard to explain.

    The proof is in the final result and while C1 does a much better job at RAF files at 100%, no one shoots photos to view at 100%. I ran a bunch of RAFs through LR and C1 and edited them however I liked. Then I compared the files at 100% viewable on the screen and picked the ones I liked. Most of the time I selected the C1 processed files.

    To my knowledge C1 is considerably more expensive??

    Ah yes, I had to check my order history. Adobe reduced the initial price of LR when 4 came out (50% reduction). Before that LR 1/2/3 was 299 initial cost, 99 dollars for an upgrade (unless the software was near a new release cycle, then they lowered the costs). I think they reduced the cost to better compete with Aperture which had evolved to "just as good, but half the price". Upgrades went from 99 to 79, roughly a 20% decrease so the plan must have been to bring new users into the fold while assuming existing customers would stay.

    Yes. A hefty decrease.
