    Then you are stuffed unfortunately. :-( I use a number of Olympus
    OM lenses on my 1Ds2 and it would be great if they did the math on
    that combination, but sadly that will never happen.

    Cheers

  2. Sorry, I meant Photoshop CS4, not PS4! DxO sounds good...I don't
    batch many photos, preferring to work on each individual photo.
    Running PTLens is no big step as a Photoshop filter as part of my
    workflow.I've got something that works for me now, and I don't feel
    the need to update at the present time. Perhaps in the future! Do DxO
    have a trial version? Definitely worth a look.

    Thanks.

    Yes DXO has a trial version... it can even be extended once it runs
    out. It's cool if you have a workflow that you are happy with, but
    the problem for me with Photoshop for RAW conversions, is that the
    image quality it produces has always been sub-par with other
    applications such as DXO or Capture One..... just my experience.

    Chers

    They could have shortened all that to "DxO is a piece of crap
    software!"

    : Exchange it for an entry-level DSLR.

    You didn't actually read Rusty's article, did you? You just read the title.

    : It would make more sense if he mentioned what a Waverunner is and what

    : The Waverunner is something that requires a water tight camera and

    :
    : DxO Optics Pro is an award winning automatic image enhancement software
    : for professional and enthusiastic amateur photographers, capable of
    : handling JPEG as well as RAW files.
    :
    : World renowned for its unique automated optical correction features, it
    : addresses the entire spectrum of image quality issues.
    :
    : Whether you want to let the software enhance hundreds of pictures
    : automatically, or wish to manually define the settings for each image,
    : DxO Optics Pro will meet your needs for outstanding image quality and
    : productivity.

    : It has modules that are camera specific.
    :
    : It has Windows and Mac versions. It is French. Pricing starts at 124
    : Euros or US$169.

    I'd never heard of it, but I'm intrigued by Rusty's assertion that it's better
    than DPP. I use DPP on RAW files produced by my 50D and 400D and have been
    impressed with its performance and ease of use. Does anyone else have an
    opinion on the relative merits of the two programs? Bret pronounced DXO a
    piece of crap, but didn't elaborate.
