DxO Labs has updated DxO Optics Pro to v7.2.3, adding support for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Pentax's K-01. The latest version includes 70 camera and lens combination modules for the 5D III and 26 for the Pentax K-mount mirrorless camera. As usual, a 30-day free trial of the software is available.


Press Release:

DxO Optics Pro v7.2.3 supports the Canon EOS 5D Mark III

May 2, 2012 - DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v7.2.3 for Mac and Windows, its image processing software of reference for all serious photographers. This update allows DxO Optics Pro to offer support for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and for the Pentax K-01, the latest in the Pentax hybrid camera lineup.

AN EXCLUSIVE CALIBRATION PROCESS

DxO Optics Pro v7.2.3 has already integrated 70 DxO Optics Modules for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 26 Modules for the Pentax K-01.

DxO Optics Modules are developed through a calibration process exclusive to DxO Labs, based on careful analysis of each camera and lens combination under different shooting conditions. This means that DxO Optics Pro automatically applies optical corrections for such problems as distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lack of sharpness in a way that is perfectly adapted to each user’s equipment.

Camera and lens performance analyses are available on DxOMark, the reference site for image quality measurements. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has achieved the best score among all Canon digital cameras (more information about this camera here.)

When will a 30-day trial version of DxO Optics Pro 7.2.3 be made available ?

It seems immediately obvious that since DxO Labs is allegedly always improving their product (in terms of functionality and operational integrity), and a newer version than Version 7.2.2 (Version 7.2.3) is now available, that prospective customers such as myself would want to try the latest Version 7.2.3 ...

Axel (or other designated DxO Labs representative), please respond to this inquiry, and please provide information to DPReview members regarding the specific date after which the download-able trial-version of DxO Optics Pro will be updated to the latest Version 7.2.3.

Hi,

The trial version currently downloadable is version 7.2.3:

We published version 7.2.3 as trial around 3PM (Paris time) yesterday.
You're indeed right, we obviously always give the latest version of DxO Optics Pro for our visitors to try.

Enjoy this new version!

I own a 5d MkIII and just upgraded from DXO 7 Pro to DXO 7 Elite. It is my understanding that support for the 5d MkIII is only available in the Elite addition. Am I correct?

Hi Goudy,

Indeed, like all professional cameras, the 5Dmk3 is only available in the Elite edition.

Enjoy your 5Dmk3,

Well perhaps DXO will get around to the Nikon D800 as soon as Sony launches their camera using the same sensor.

It doesn't open any of my D800 files (displays the preview but says it's not supported), only my 5Dmk3 files. Not sure when it is, but maybe Axel from DxO Labs will comment on a date. This update is about 3 weeks earlier than I expected which is nice for my 5Dmk3, but would be nice to get support for the Nikon D800.

Hi,

Indeed, the Nikon D800 has top priority and should not be long to come. You can expect it next month, at the latest.

Have fun with your 5Dmk3 !

@HowaboutRAW:

Considering that DxO Optics has a LOT more modules for Nikon than Sony, I don't know what are you talking about. They are most likely generating modules out of all the lenses they support in Nikon mount.

I'd be thrilled if they had Sony as a higher priority, but Nikon will always come first.

So relax, Nikon D800 support will come soon.

I am considering to buy the new version of DxO Optics Pro for my new 5Dmk3. I am quite impressed after two days of testing it. But I am wondering if there will be more modules added in short future and what is the estimated time horizon? Since I use the Canon 4/70-200 L without IS a lot and it is still not supported and I can see the big difference in time for manually achieving the automatic results for supported combinations.

I was wondering if there's any sort of workaround I can use for the time being with my D800 and 14-24 f2.8 Nikkor.

And as best as I know, still no Samsung NX cameras.
