Slight OT but your website (nice shots BTW) is displaying images in pretty poor quality - I'm talking about the rotating large backdrop pics.  They're blown up too far and look quite blurry.  I'm sure it's Zenfolio not you, but just thought I'd say!

Do not expect much magic on the partitioning of the LLK, LK, K with the Wasatch SoftRip, it is either baked in or goes along with the partitioning of the LM, M and LC, C channels. I have the Wasatch SoftRip and it could be used quite nice with the old 6 and 7 channel Epsons but failed miserably on the HP Z's 12 channels. I have it 13 years now and did 2 or 3 upgrades and it has been idle most of that time. Service was not longer than 6 months per upgrade and my requests for better B&W methods did not interest them, its market is sign, sublimation, textile etc. Complaints about 3 lousy default CMYKetc profiles for the Zs were not solved, the replacement profiles were worse. Bad black generation, bad N-color approach.

Upon further examination I must say the preview quality of CO 8 does not match the real output quality.

Reason: most likely that the preview is a heavily compressed JPEG.

As a consequence you are basically flying blind in regard to detail when editing images. The preset sharpening of CO 8 is very aggressive, and it's easy to overshoot that way.

For future editions and more powerful computers it would be great to have the RAW data directly processed to a screen image instead of using a compressed jpeg.

It's a problem that all RAW processors share and likely is put in place as our computers may not be powerful enough to do RAW processing on the fly for WYSIWYG editing.

Can you imagine the calculating power you'd need to process a 60 or 80 MP image from a mf back?

So, there's really room for improvement.

Yup. Manual is usually much easier than AE. Set correct exposure and....well that's it.

Nice pics BTW.

That was why I suggested using a hand meter: once you know the correct exposure for the highlight, you got it all as with trannies.

Naturally, that assumes the direction of the light remains pretty much the same for the shots you are about to make, as it was for the reading.

Either way, Matrix or hand meter, you gotta use your brain, at least a bit.

I looked at, but it is difficult to do an opinion.
I am for sure way less qualified than Robyn Myers, I just shared my measurements for posterity...

I looked at, but it is difficult to do an opinion. I downloaded the spectral datas and, a day, I will try to do a profile.

The 14-140 is a good workhorse all round zoom.

The 12-35 and 35-100 HD are much better lenses.

These last two coupled with the 100-300 is a great set.

But if you are limited to one zoom, go for the 14-140 and test it before buying if you can.

A thick protective layer of gloss varnish and after that a thin matte varnish. Sounds illlogic but is not, building a protective layer with matte varnish is like spilling milk on it.
