Anybody use Lightroom with this lens yet? DXO optics pro doesn't support it in their database yet. Trying to decide on whether to wait on DXO to support it or just get lightroom since it's lates release does have it in their database.

I'm in the same boat... have the new lens, but not supported by DXO Optics Pro. However, DXO has been adding new lens modules more quickly, so maybe it won't take too long.  If you haven't done so (and you probably have), then please fill in your request to add this lens, on the DXO website. It would add quite a bit to the effective price of the lens,  having to buy Lightroom.  I have also found the wide-angle barrel distortion easy to correct manually in DXO, and the sharpness can also be tweaked on the long (250mm) end. In fact, I created my own custom presets to do just that, so that I can just apply my own presets at 18 and 250mm.
