    If you have an E-M1 you will need the Elite edition... works out at 200 dollars for that edition.

    Thanks. I have an EPM2 and tried the DxO optics and liked that it has camera plugins and lens plugins easily downloadable which I guess aid in correcting distortion and specific lens characteristics.

    I currently only use Olympus Viewer 2 for minor PP but like to use some advanced tool.

    Good to know that my E-M1 is "elite". :wink: Oh wait, never mind, not being elite would be much cheaper.

    Haha! So true! It's frustrating to think that if you own an em5 you get to use the exact same software for 99 dollars less. But they fleece E-M1 users :-/

    Great software for cooking raws, but it is in no way a replacement for lightroom for organizing and quick edits. $99 is a good price but it's been down to $80.

    I think the reason for the price difference is that DXO thinks that most users that have the Top-Of-The-Line Olympus camera is using it for commercial purposes, so can afford the extra cost... but unfortunately enthusiasts like you have to suffer.

    Yep, I use Lightroom to import my pictures (so haven't bothered to upgrade from version 4) and use DXO Optics Pro to edit my RAWs. The PRIME noise correction is incredibly effective on RAWs from my Panasonic G3, but for some odd reason, not quite as effective on RAWs from my Olympus cameras: XZ-2, and PM2.

    I never saw DXO Optics Pro for less than $99, but I bought it when it was on its periodic sale for $99. It does better sharpening and lens correction than any similar program I've tried. The new version 9.5 has improved integration with Lightroom, which I tried successfully this weekend. I prefer Lightroom's colors but DXO's optical corrections.
