Is DXO lens correction really able to make a lens THAT much better?

I am wondering because then it could be a good investment and also smart to buy lenses that are already in its database to get the most of it.
What do you guys think about it?

Yes.

A wile ago Albert linked to some samples processed with and without DxO. Remarkable.
Why don't you try it out for a few weeks?

As for buying the lenses that are supported, for me that would be a strange approach.
On the other hand if you are in doubt about two equivalent lenses where one is supported and one is not, then this might be a factor to take into consideration.

Also, I find DxO a very fine RAW converter even for not supported lenses.

As I said, why don't you give it a try?

I mean to compare the kit to something else...I guess I can compare it at 50 vs my manual 50mm and see how correct and stock compared to the 50mm lens.
I supposed the demo allows for doing all this.
Thanks

I finally got this installed, need to do some tests but I already found it annoying that DXO does not work under Vista 64 which is my most used OS right now.
I need to switch back to XP or I get a track something error when opening my images for processing...weird.

That is strange. It should run under Vista 64.
From the DxO Forum:

...Just received a new PC with 6 GB and Vista64.
But DXO is runnig in 32bit mode and up to 2 GB Memory use...

Don't be afraid to contact DxO for support.

support

Sorry I can't help you myself: lowely 32bit user here
