Thanks for the tip. I’ll try it as soon as I get my D800E back from service (probably shutter oil on the sensor or its protective filter).

I have a comment or question, though. While I’ve never used any of the picture controls in the D800E (because Adobe software do not honor them), I often try the near-equivalent settings in Lightroom or ACR. Yet I almost never settle on Vivid with my D800E photos, particularly for the reason that shows in your top photo. The contrast is fearsome and dynamic range very small. So it looks like that if you use Neutral or Portrait presets, you have a much better starting point than by using Vivid.

I may be mistaken, but as I said, I can’t test myself as long as my camera is in service.

Regards, Antero
