    Has anyone here used DXOmark for Raw processing? What are your impressions? How does it compare to LR overall, and in terms of specific functions like lens distortion control?

    I have been using DXO Optics for last 4 months. It has wonderful auto correction options, Along with Manual adjustments. The most important and powerful feature of DXO optics is the correction it can apply for the specific lens camera combination. The correction includes distortion correction, CA/PF correction, Lens Softness correction (an amazing feature).
    If you compare DXO Optics with LR, DXO completely lack the localized adjustment option (only one exception is dust removal, but it is no where near LR for that). All changes are applied globally but intelligently. For the money you pay it is worth. But if you need advanced editing option you better prefer Capture 1 or LR.
    Normally I do optical correction (CA, Distortion, Lens softness, WB) in DXO optics and do other manipulations in Paint Shop Pro X5 (now X6).
    The DXO labs has listed NEX-6 in there database of supported cameras.
