promising interface and inclusions though, price is right also.

And unlike a number of converters it supports DNG...

Definitely worth watching but unfortunately not a lot of use as it stands. His comparisons page wasn't really honest either; I use Silkypix and by default it produces none of the nasty artefacts you see in his comparison but does have controls to balance detail extraction with accurate demosaicing. The default produces nice smooth images free of artefacts but if you push it to the limit you get all sorts of odd effects - just like he shows in the comparisons. If he's made Silkypix look as bad as possible I expect he's done the same to the others too. That's simply not being honest I'm afraid.
