Hi Carl, seems very crisp shots, especially the first. Have you compared with the version without DXO PureRAW and see how much improvement it gives? Does DXO PureRAW have profiles for these older Contax lenses? I'd be interested in your experience with this program. I have been thinking to download the 30 day trial but haven't found the time yet. Downloading is not the problem, it's the evaluation that follows that probably eats more time than I have available at the moment.
I added a screen grab comparison of the original ARW file and PureRAW conversion in my reply above.

Thanks Carl, I think the improvement is more than subtle (when pixel peeping), thanks for showing this comparison.

Two insect close-ups from my Thursday afternoon local stroll.
1) Assumed this was a type of wasp until ploughing through my 'Guide to the Insects of Britain & Ireland' (Paul D Brock) and was able to identify it as a type of bee. Specifically it is a Gooden's Nomad Bee, Nomada goodeniana.

2) I thought this might be a 'Mission Impossible' to identify but the guide book (and info from a FB Group) point towards one of the Mining Bee's (Andrena species).

Statue on the big market square depicting the source of the name Antwerpen.
It comes from "Hand Werpen" = "Throwing a Hand", a legend where the hero Brabo defeated the giant Antigonus, cut off the giant's hand and threw it in the river Schelde.
