I've just written up some notes on testing out DxO optics Pro V8.

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/reviews/software/dxo_optics_pro8.html

I've used the software for some time as a RAW converter for individual images (often for print), rather than with my day to day work as a commercial photographer. As such, the notes deal far more with image quality aspects rather than workflow (which I do still find a bit clunky in areas) or Flickr uploading.

Hope it's of some interest...


FYI - I should note that some of my pics are used as examples by DxO on their web site, but I've no commercial connection with them

Nice report.  I had bought DXO 6, tried it for a few weeks and then didn't bother with it since 2009.  My main work is with LR and Photoshop, and I found the few real advantages in DXO 6 processing were not worth the extra time and effort given what I considered an awkward interface and too many steps before getting an image from the camera through LR or Bridge, into DXO, then back to LR and Bridge.

I saw a demo of DXO 8 last night, and some of the features (especially shadow recovery and noise reduction) seemed good enough to investigate a trial run, since the upgrade price is currently very reasonable.  Your review mentioned most of the concerns that I have, and I am now in the process of downloading the trial version.

I checked the DXO website and could not find whether there was a module for the 5DIII and Tamron 28-300 VC lens, so I'll have to wait until I install the trial version.  I'm pretty sure the rest of my camera/lens combos are covered.
