Judging by the review I've read on the website:

  *It's very expensive -- you have to purchase each lens calibration 
set separately
* and it doesn't work as well as the Photoshop native tools

The reviewer suggested that people wait until version 2.0 (or in so 
many words). Where was that review....... anyone remember the URL?


p.s. I can believe the program can learn to compensate for some 
barrel/pincushion type distortion as well as for some chromatic 
aberration error, but it really can't make something out of nothing. 
Those movies where the FBI/NSA/NASA/JPL technicians are able to turn 
a fuzzy face into something so sharp you can see Robert DeNiro's 
warts are ... well.. science fiction.
