if you are on OSX and already have LR and PS then I would suggest to try free RPP with excellent automation provided by Mark-vdi (search forum for RPP and Mark_vdi). Superb details.

RPP, being based on DCRAW, has the dreaded zipper effect. I couldn't get around that with the JPEG overlay method that's been proposed by abelits a while back and worked out by Mark_vdi just recently, because lens corrections can't be accommodated. It seems to work well though with optically corrected lenses that show no significant distortion.

I think the zipper effect is over stated. It doesn't show in web images, or in prints of any size other than very large prints, which usually demand a larger viewing distance anyways. We're talking 200% details.

At least that's been my experience with the effect.
