I found the maxwell renderengine very nice for simulating studio shots and outdoor shots.
I am not happy with interior shots. Too much grain (noise) which is too expensive (render time) to get rid of (if even possible).
No support for ies lights.
Speed is with maxwell no option. If one has an optimized setting in vray and knows about color space and the vray camera, vray is faster, gives better results, is able to process ies lights and is much sharper.
Sorry, maxwell is not for me.
Maybe in the future when the hardware is able to process photonmapping how we want to, I will try Maxwell again.
