DxO Labs, announces the immediate availability DxO Optics Pro v8.1.1 for Mac and Windows, the latest version of its image processing software of reference for all serious photographers. This upgrade allows DxO Optics Pro 8 to support the Sony SLT-A99, the Pentax K-5 II and K-5 IIs, and the Canon EOS M.
