I’ve recently moved to PL5 from LR, am an enthusiastic amateur of a certain age and use a Leica CL APS-C with native 23, 35, and 60mm prime lenses.
The 23 and 60mm lenses have optic module support in PL5, though the 35mm doesn’t. I have requested it through the web site though it’s not a “new” lens and the rest of the range already have support so I’m moving forward accepting there’s probably a reason for that.
This leads me to my question, in your experience, is there a best practice for applying sharpening when the image is not made with a supported lens?
I have Topaz SharpeningAI which I can resort to though that is outside the DxO ecosystem and the two really don’t play nicely together. I can work with TIFF files in either though when it comes to linear DNGs (e.g. denoised RAW) and metadata all bets are off. To avoid a rumble between two competing AI implementations I’ve found it best to keep them at a distance.
I’m a bit of an overthinker, it may be that the native PL5 generic tools are fine, though I’d welcome some of your experiences.
For completeness, here is the article dedicated to distortion manual correction.
It is written for ViewPoint (by @gerarto), but it is actually a tool in PhotoLab, the Geometry palette.
Enjoy your reading.
