And here I was thinking I was going to bed early tonight!

There are several things that I noticed - PhotoLab will correct more things than it used to (or did I never really figure it out?) - wonder how well the lens distortion correctionwill work? It also supports converting to DNG.

Does anyone convert their pictures to DNG? I've been saving my pictures as both, but lately have been wondering if that's really necessary.
