Re: DxO Photolab as LR replacement?

Meh, I'm still waiting for a LR replacement.  I've been trialing C1 Pro, but I'm not really feeling it.  I also tried DxO, and it works well.  I like that they have a lot of profiles to choose from as a starting point, and some of their features like smart lighting worked nicely.

I would prefer to have software with DAM, and I just like the workflow in LR better.  DxO just seems a bit cluttered, and it seemed to lag a bit, speed wise.

I'd love to ditch Adobe, but I've yet to find something I like as much (or better).  One huge thing for me is that I like Nikon's color rendering.  I don't want to shoot jpeg, but I can re-create this look in LR with the camera calibration profiles.  Why no other manufacturer has bothered to include this feature is beyond me.
