    Now that Adobe finally improved der demosaicing for x10 HR RAWs (at native 4000x3000) Lightroom is in my humble opinion the best raw converter for x10 RAWs around. I took two test images and developed them with the new version. The sharpening process is still somewhat quirky but way better managable than before.

    Could you please upload the RAW of the first shot?

    I uploaded the RAW file to my dropbox:

    https://dl.dropbox.com/u/5639113/20130302-092234_x10_test.RAF

    Please keep in mind, that it is (color- and detailwise) somewhat "overprocessed" (I had to stare at some HDRs for quite some time before I processed this one and the light was quite dull ;)) . Perhaps I will give it a more natural try later. Furthermore there may be some minor motion blur in the shot, since I was on a first quick walk around with my then brand new x10 and I didn't have enough time to take a proper photo.

    I didn't notice any blur, here's a quick take with quite some detail...

    Would you mind to tell me which converter you used? Because I just tried to develop a shot from today and in that one the old problems (introducing grain instead of details) are still there and a pain in the ... . So it seems to depend on the image if LR 4.4 is better than 4.3. I still need to compare it to an "in camera conversion" to decide, if LR gains or looses details on this new shot. But I will not invest further 200 bucks for new converter. I could buy a x20 from that money + my x10 ;)

    Lightroom 4.4, because this is what this thread is all about. ;)
