You are trying to compare Fruits and Vegitables, not even as close as apples and oranges. Both do different jobs and do them well. IMHO, CS2 will do much, if not all, of what DXO does but you have a steep learning curve with CS2. For the supported cameras, DXO automates several items and enhances photographs. It is one of several good tools that might bein a photographers toolbox.

Nonetheless, because I can do so verymuch more as well as all DXO does and use certain scripts, plugins, actions, etc. to automate many things using PhotoShop CS2, I would NOT purchase DXO as a primary tool. In fact, for my workflow I do not feel DXO has pays for itself. But for speed and automationfor repair of certain "flaws", perspective corrections, etc. DXO cannot be beat. All IMHO.

The thing is though, Photoshop does 100 times more than DXO so it's hard to figure the price into consideration. As far as I know, DXO is just an optical enhancer that fixes flaws with lenses and vignetting and so forth, where photoshop can do all of that and more. As a matter of fact, if you can think of it, you can do it in Photoshop.

But yes, 700 smakers is a lot of spending money :-)
