    I saw this posted on a different site. I purchased the non-elite version few years back and loved it. Enter your email and you will receive an email with the links to download Win or OS X versions and the activation code. The software should be in English. Signup by Aug 31, 2016

    Keep in mind that as an old version, it doesn't support newer cameras and lens corrections for newer lenses.

    Very true. It should support E-M1, 5, & 10. Also it does support 40-150 Pro.

    Brilliant, thanks, I'd like to try this for the "prime" noise reduction...

    Well, it works - although a quick trial on my trusty but lightweight (in both senses of the word) Surface 3 took 12 minutes to process one picture with Prime NR!

    How long would noise reduction normally take you with another program?

    Well, I just did a test and doing heavy NR and edits on a single ISO3200 image, Lightroom did an export to local drive on my Surface 3 in 15 seconds...
    And I also tried DXO, with "normal" (non-prime) NR, and the same photo too about 45 secs to export.

    So for me, Prime NR will be something to use for "one-off" special cases where serious NR is required.

    they improved Prime speed dramatically in the newer versions 10 and 11. That's probably why it is free now. don't forget it is old software.

    Thanks OP, works for me well.

    Absolutely agree! I'm certainly not complaining about it at this price...!

    FWIW with OpticsPro (I have no experience with any other converters) the output settings have a huge impact on processing time. I generally output 90% jpgs (~3 MB) and they go fast enough. I fooled around with some 98-100% jpgs once (8-18 MB) and it took a long time. So make sure you're comparing apples to apples there.

    Also FWIW with my GX7's files I find the regular NR routine is fine up to 1600, while Prime seems to start to benefit at 3200.
