I’m relatively new to this forum. In the past 8-12 mos., I’ve begun transitioning from film based photography to digital. Even more recently, I purchased a 5D MK II. I was already shooting with a Rebel T3i and the 24-105 f/4L. While doing some research on the camera and the 24-105L f4, I happened to read SLRGear’s review on the later, where the reviewer mentions:
“Bottom line, the Canon 24-105mm f/4L is a really excellent optic, but once that struggles a bit along the edges and in the corners with full-frame bodies. As such, it’s an almost ideal candidate for use with DxO Optics Pro, particularly if you’re shooting with a full-frame DSLR.”
I’ve completed a PC build that will be dedicated to image editing but I’ve loaded no software other than Windows 7 64-bit Professional. I need to do some more work on the OS configuration and install all of those lovely windows security updates that I know are waiting for me. In addition to Win 7, I have 16GB RAM (upgradeable to 32), 256GB SSD, and 2-2TB HDD’s.
Although I’ve used Photoshop CS3 in the past, I haven’t yet decided on purchasing the current version. I do have a copy of Adobe LR4 but was curious about DxO Optics Pro.
So now that I have the 24-105 and a full-frame DSLR, and in the process of installing image editing software, I was wondering how many of you out there include DxO Optics Pro as part of your image editing workflow? Do you like the results you’re able to achieve with DxO Optics Pro as opposed to other software image editing tools that you currently use or have used?
