Douglas69: I'm one of DxO's original customers. I was brilliant at fixing the terrible flaws in the 'kit lens' I got with my Canon 10D. I was a huge fan of the software. Sadly, when I moved to Nikon cameras, DxO lost its usefulness.
The image flaws didn't seem to be as bad but he quality of processed results has never lived up to how it worked with Canon images. Unless this release is spectacular, compared to Version 6, I think I'll stop using it altogether.
Now that PS camera Raw has lens correction modules, DxO is losing it's usefulness entirely... Sorry for the negative response but I'm really disappointed in the product and it will take a lot to change my mind. Their 'film' simulator is the only part of DxO I now use.
Following your comment, I had a closer look around on the web and found this review on Imaging Resources:http://www.imaging-resource.com/SOFT/DxOv7/optics-pro.htm
I have to say that I'm tempted to believe a guy like Mike Pasini when he says:"There are alternatives, certainly, but they don't have the built-in expertise of Optics Pro's modules. Lightroom probably comes the closest in Raw processing, noise reduction and workflow but it isn't in the same league when it comes to optical correction.Optics Pro is not just a valuable tool but an indispensable tool."
So I'll definitely give it a try and think about this special offer :)
Yanki Doson: Hello, please tell me how to buy DxO Optics Pro 7 along with a package of accompanying documents to Russia?A great program ....
I saw the box version on Amazon.de. Maybe it could be your solution.
Hope this helps,
