Compared Lightroom 2.5 Image Rendering with Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta (Nikon D300 Raw Files):
* In the Park raw-images both in Lightroom 2.5/3b1 precessed and exported as jpeg - there is a lot more detail with LR 3b1- sharpening has clearly improved.
* Second picture in a cathedral taken with with ISO 1250; Image with Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta much sharper but higher Luminance noise ( Luminance noise reduction was deactivated in Beta);
* Third Picture - even with ISO 200 - it's a little bit sharper - more detailed color but tends to be more grainy (Blue T-Shirt, Green jacket, ...)
Both on LR 2.5 and LR 3.0b luminance noise was deactivated - all settings are equal
