Downloaded 3 trial versions....

I downloaded trial versions for Silkypix pro, Lightroom 3 and Capture One 6 Pro.

I very highly recommend it to whoever has not already committed to one of the 3, and is not afraid of dropping 300 euro or so in a month's time

It's been an eye opener, in all 3 cases.

I've spent a day with each, and in that short time, I completely fell head-over-heels for Capture One Pro. I fear there is no way I'll be happy with Pentax DCU after another 29 days with this!

As a side not, it's the first time I see a difference between DNG and PEF files. In Capture One, while both files are supported, Capture one optimizes for the K5's sensor with PEF files, while it does NOT for DNGs. I found out the hard way, trying (in vain) to tame the colors of a portrait in DNG format, and it took me a while to find out what was wrong.

Soooo.... SHOOT PEFs, not DNGs !
