I don't know why "others" are challenged by DXO, I have been using it for 3 years and it does 90% of everything I need. Its absolutely the best Nikon Raw Converter, it equals Capture NX2, its lens corrections are automatic and flawless, and its interface is simple and straightforward. I import files, convert and make global adjustments, save as Tiff, open in Lightroom if necessary for local adjustments and printing. If DXO had local adjustments and a better print module, it would be all I would use.

If DxO had something like Lightroom or Aperture, I'm pretty sure I would buy that.

Unfortunately, DXO LAbs and DXOmark have not been capable of supporting the APS-C“X-Trans CMOS II” sensor use in the Fujifilm X100S or theXpro1. They do not yet have the engineering talent. The only software company who gets it right and enables perfection is SilkyPix; but SlikyPix requires technical knowledge of software, optics, lighting and math knowledge, which is beyond average professional or amateur photographers. It will be a long time before DXO will have software for the APS-C“X-Trans CMOS II” sensor cameras right.

DXO has always had the worst user interface of any product out there. I would not touch it with a 10 foot pole. Lightroom is WAY better.

As much as I hate lightroom, it does a better job. Sorry I spent money on DxO.

+1. At this point there's really no reason why they shouldn't be able to include support for it with Adobe, Phase One and Apple all being able to demosaic the camera.

Are we liking DxO Pro? Have tried it over the past few days and amazed at the superior results compared to Adobe products.
