So good its finally here. Espacially the ability to create one's own profiles is amazing. I wonder what will happen to dxo pro. It will probably only survive if the price is lowered considerably. dxo standrad is alread priced welll below LR so I suppose it may still find customers.

I think LR3 is set to become as dominant as PhotoShop with all the improvements coming. They just have the monery and expertise that no other developer has IMO.

Purely in terms of image quality, will using the lens correction tool in lightroom 3 on the raw file as opposed to in photohshop cs5 on the processed tiff file give a higher image quality, or less image degradation as the case may be, with lens correction software.

It should as one would expect from nearly all raw, parametric editing. You’d certainly be processing the data in a high gamut, high bit depth, optimized order to produce the rendered pixels and you could always go back and alter any of the settings to render a different iteration.

Even if the lens correction is exactly the same quality, there's still a benefit to doing it in the raw converter. Because you can't crop or rotate in the raw converter and then do lens correction in Photoshop.  Having the lens correction in LR/ACR means you can do your cropping in RAW and still take advantage of the corrections.
