Adobe Lightroom 5.2 RC vs Sony’s Image Data Converter – which one handles Sony RX100 M2 Raw files better?

The above Raw file is from my visit to the James Turrell Exhibit at the Guggenheim.  I was originally disappointed in the above shot.  A gray image captured in full color can be tough for any sensor.  But, I was pleasantly surprised by how Lightroom 5.2 RC handled the same Raw file.  You can see them above.  Lightroom processed the image beautifully on its default settings.  Great detail and tonal separations with NO COLOR NOISE!  Take a look at how it looks after some tweaks:

In the 100% close-up of the same Raw file, you can clearly see the color noise on the Sony processed image.  In the Lightroom version, there is grain but it is ISO 800.  Again, this is Adobe’s “Release Candidate”, so I expect the full release within the month.  It just makes me want to take more pictures 😉

The Sony RX100 M2 is currently in stock at both Adorama and B&H Photo.
