Software & Accessories / DxO optics pro (8)
« on: December 17, 2012, 10:11:58 PM »
Hello all,

I have been trying out Dxo optics pro 8 and found the lens correction part very nice - the contrast seem to decrease somehow with autocorrection though. Considering to purchase it but I have no experience on LR (or any other Adobe software) so I was wondering whether anyone could provide feedback whether DxO optics pro is a good option.

I have 2 OS, windows and linux and use darktable, raw therapee and gimp mainly.  Lens correction data I could locate for these programs mainly refer to distortion correction and is not as extensive as the DxO offering.

Any feedback will be appreciated..


  18 is annoyingly not-quite-wide-enough for a lot of things that you'll encounter when walking around.

I went with a Tokina 12-24 during that very annoyance  :)

I would also go for option 2.

None of the 18-135 are the new STM lens, right?

+1 for better DR and improved ISO performance. I guess it will come down to how improved the read noise is going to be...

Also, I would appreciate if it did not make the 100-400 look bad. Just ordered one  ;D

Any experiences? Anything specific I should check?
Without expensive equipment it is very difficult to tell how good your specific sample is (I had this problem when I bought my 70-300L). The one method I could imagine and tired is compare the new lens to an older one that you know is a good copy and sharp (in my case the 100L). Then match this difference to the expected difference from the iso crops of ... and if you are not satisfied try afma or replace the new lens.

Thanks!!  :)

I am going to get the 100-400 shortly as I will need the reach in an upcoming trip, however I have seen sample variation for this lens mentioned in many places. Any experiences? Anything specific I should check?

 ::) I cannot really see something that justifies the price for an f/4 lens but then... Canon...  ;D

On a separate note, I have been looking at Canon lenses vs da Nikons on photozone. Seems like noinks have significantly more CA. Klaus seem to disregard it suggesting it can be corrected in post-process or da cams can correct it but still, their lenses cost more than canon's corresponding lenses (at least they used to to this year I  think   :( ) without anything superior but decently placed CA?  :o

"And finally: the rumored high megapixel DSLR (at least 46MP) could be announced during Q3. Unfortunately no specs here, except that it will have 6fps, and a newly designed sensor with very good low ISO performance. No hints about the name, but it will not have the “D” in the name. It's said to be something “very new” and specifically aimed at studio photography. Prototypes already undergoing tests."

6 fps on 46 MP - Would double digic 5 + be able to achieve that? Perhaps double digic 6 down the line...

Landscape photographers use whatever focal length is best for the scene in front of them.

+1.  Here's the 100L Macro as a 'landscape lens':

+1, and Neuro, that is one beautiful image!

Pricewatch Deals / DigitalRev EOS M deal (Europe)?

Hi all,

I saw this over at canonwatch and was wondering whether anyone from Europe tried purchasing from DigitalRev... Any experiences?

I guess Canon will not learn anything about competitive pricing until Nikon and Sony get a juicy bite from their market share.

Also lately Canon seems to be trying to defend by countering Nikon's announcements more and more, only with what appears to be higher price tags and less value offerings...  ::)

How many were actually expecting this 24-70 f/4 prior to the 14-24 f/2.8, the new 100-400 or even the 200-400?

in another thread,, it has been suggested that the Yen price of the 24-70 f/4  translates to some $/€1700-1800. If that's true, a 24-105 below $/€ 1000 would not be good for the milk business...
