I have Topaz and wondered if it is suitable for developing RAW files or if DXO is significantly better? Can anyone point me to a place to learn how to do this as I've only started shooting Raw.

I know nothing about Topaz but I've been using DXO PL5 for 9 months now. I rarely shot RAW before because the effort to get good results just wasn't worth it. Now I shoot only RAW and Batch process everything with DXO because it's so easy to use and I get better results than I get shooting JPEG.

..I shot jpg with my RX10 mk1 just for about two weeks, discovered the Capture One Express for Sony and found my preference starting settings within a few hours of fiddling around with af few pictures, saved that as "my default user style".  A few months later I went to Capture One Pro for Sony.

If Capture One Express is still available for free, you can always start with that.
