Hi Karen,
The information sheet I picked up from DxO during the demonstration at the 
Photokina. I quote for the DxO Raw Engine and DxO Optics Pro 2.0 :
"full 16 bit processing and RAW image data, vignetting and Blur
corrections are subtler and more accurate than what is possible within
the constraints of an 8bit jpeg image".

here's their latest price list as of Photokina,  the 16-bit Raw 2.0
version should be out soon. I think we'll have to wait and see
until it's tested against PS.
