5D III + old 16-35 f2.8 II(f3.2 1/60 12800ISO).
Well, the 16-35L2 f2.8 isn't old because there's no f2.8 L3 :-) But if there'S a reason to add is to lenses, it's shots like these.Not great, but good enough to keep.
Before troubling dxo with these, I'd say it doesn't hurt to try LR with the correct settings. I expect your computer setup is high-end, too, so in your case it doesn't really hurt - but for others it's overhead you can probably skip while retaining a raw workflow
The shot is clipped black and white, and I really don't see any details that would have been recovered by superior noise reduction ... but it added noise in the clipped areas, strange enough. I know this effect from my own dxo experiments, and imho this "film noise" it's more a matter of taste than good or bad nr.
If you're dealing with areas of colors or gradients, iso noise doesn't really matter, it's more about color reproduction - and dxo cannot save this.
What do you think?
