Curious as to which settings you guys use most of the time for ADL. Since ADL does impact the camera's exposure during shooting, it's not necessarily something you can 'recover' or add in post-processing. Any thoughts as to impacts in overall image quality, dynamic range, noise levels (overall and in shadows), etc? I've found I always shoot with it off, thinking I can recover shadow and/or highlight details while manipulating RAW files later. But maybe I'm missing out...
