DxO PhotoLab 4 versus Lightroom 6.1
1

Appreciate perspectives from people that may have used both. I have used and been reasonably happy with Lightroom and never felt I really wanted or could afford a subscription based service (I know there is a whole debate about 'value' of the subscription service), but putting that to the side, wanted to discuss the captioned. Believe I am fairly proficient with getting most out of the older version of LR. However, I do wonder about alternative editing software like DxO PhotoLab 4 and in particular whether any key features like their promoted "DENOISING AND DEMOSAICING" features are materially better than the what is available in the noise reduction features of LR 6.1. Main area of specific interest is probably more geared around MFT but I also shoot FF too and obviously would have applicability there I assume.

Before I download the trial version and spend a lot of time pixel peeping and comparing, testing functionality, just hoped to get a sample perspective of how materially different, better and worse DxO is to it. Others software versus the original LR that might make measurable step-function change improvements? Thanks.
