Nice concise sum-up with many good observation and I second most of your views.

Actually, sometimes RSE got colour more right than PPL, but just that PPL's colors like better - but it doesn't mean it is accurate. But I do agree that the overall colors produced by RSE look strange under many situations, especially for the green leaves.

I actually had more problems with the reds in RSP. When i used silky pix the reds seemed much better.

Was not sure what all the acronyms meant in this post so I started a google search ... you might be interested in this article. Seems choices are about to be limited:

Thanks Mike

I had already heard about Rawshooter. That was the reason I started testing the other Converters. I hate that Adobe swallowed them up. At this point in My testing, i still Think I will continue to use Raw Shooter until it gives me a reason not to. Then I will deciede What to do Next.

Pentax: I don't understand if auto is really doing anything. I assume it automatically exposes the image as soon as you load the image. But if it IS working then one click processing and saving is a no brainer for ease of use.
I use Pentax PhotoLab v2 - it is only compatible with the *istDS but it produces images with the colour rendition of JPEG but with increased sharpness.

Yes, I use it on Auto & the software crashed when processing in excess of 90 images & it's slow compared with Pentax PhotoLab v2-1.

Pentax PhotoLab v2-1 does not produce as sharp an image as v2.

I've tried all the RAW converters that are available & quite honestly, I just don't get on with them either because of the colour rendition, focus issues or both.

Lacking somewhat in patience, I don't want to spend ages tweaking things so Pentax PhotoLab v2 gets my thumbs up.

Just instances that Pentax PhotoLab v2 fails.

Quick comparison between Pentax PhotoLab v2 & Pentax PhotoLab v2-1

IMHO, Pentax PhotoLab v2-1 look just the same as JPEG on ***, so why bother with Pentax PhotoLab v2-1 when JPEG produces the same result.
