DXO 9 all the way

Another vote for DXO9, for me it has much better default output than Lightroom, better lens profiles, and cheaper. Lightroom involved a little too much slider pushing for me, DXO9 gets 90% of my images looking good straight away or by a 1 click default preset change allowing me to drill down on the select few images to micro manage adjustments.

In wouldnt bother with a DAM if your only shooting as a hobby, it sounds great but you can only access your pictures on the PC the software is installed on in the case of lightroom. I have everything in a windows file system on my home network and my wife can view access photos easily using her tablet, laptop or TV. DXO works by saving a little configuration file next to the image in tour windows file structure, much easier and this allows you to try multiple RAW converters if they follow the same principle (photo ninja does the same for example)
