You have not convinced me to ditch one of the most important filters in my arsenal.
Yes but if you expose at I suggested you avoid getting the really bad blown areas in the first place.
It's really interesting how things are progressing in software though isn't it. Give it 5 years or so and because of this I bet you'll be able to pick up a full Lee kit for a fiver on eBay
