DxO PhotoLab 3 coming on October 23rd - rumors
2

While I am taking this as it's quite possible that DxO PhotoLab 3will be out on Oct 23rd.

If this was to be true, I would hold off from buying DxO PhotoLab 2 unless there was to be a free upgrade.

No rumor. It is to be expected and I have been predicting it this fall all year. Both DXO PL and C1 Pro are on an annual update cycle. C1 Pro on Oct 31 or Nov 1.

DxO Staff indicate as much in their forum (late October, early November). Then there's usually a Black Friday deal, Christmas and Easter time promotions and something in the summer as well.

It's interesting they are not issuing a free camera/lens support update version in September -- the latest version (2.3.1) is from the beginning of August, and before that new updates appeared almost on a monthly basis. So, it looks like there will be no 2.3.2 nor 2.4, but an upgrade to v.3.

Everyone was hoping for a Black Friday deal last year and I don't believe that happened. I know people hoped for C1 Pro BF deal and that for sure did not happen. I could be mixing that up with DXO. Hope I'm wrong and and there is a deal.

I guarantee version 3.

Will be interested to see if there is anything in it to warrant the upgrade or be traditional and skip every other update

That would be nice. I purchased PL and two months later PL 2 came out. It is good give people a heads up about when to purchase.

I don't recall the specifics but I know it was tempting enough for me to buy an upgrade from Optics Pro 9 Elite to PhotoLab2 Elite (it was around 50 Euros).

Yes, C1 pricing got more interesting starting from March this year -- I could upgrade my Pro for Sony license from version 8 to version 12 for 75 Euros.

Well after reading this, I am going to hold off, only because I hear that they don't do free upgrades....

This is not a rumor. Too easy

Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it."

Grrr; my next anticipated camera body is an A7R4, expected profile release date 10-2019... No free update for me!

It's also the same story for the Cannon G7x mk3 as well...

In the UK this camera is still on pre order at £3,500 you can't seriously be bothered by a modest upgrade cost to get DXO-PL support?

Also why aren't you using Capture One if cost is an issue? There is a free version or low cost Pro version for you lucky Sony owners

Those  61mp images are going to be very slow to process with PRIME; even the mere 42mp images from my A7Riii are pretty slow, and that's on a very fast machine.

89€ is the current price (I live in France).
You can expect 30% discount for a month.
Be careful, more discount for black friday isn't certain this year !
