First of all, please be aware that an optics module is only necessary for the automatic correction of optical flaws (distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, lack of sharpness). It is not necessary to load an optics module in order to work with RAW images as long as your camera is supported (which you can check on our supported cameras & lenses page), and it is always possible to work with TIFF or JPEG image files.
Even when working without a module, you will still have access to nearly all DxO PhotoLab's tools; the only difference is that optical corrections can only be applied manually. Once you have figured out the right manual settings for your images, we advise you to save them as a custom preset so that you can apply them later to similar images (especially if you work with fixed lenses).
We work constantly to expand our database of DxO modules. To help us set our priorities, you can ask us to develop a DxO optics module for your particular camera-lens combination. Before making your request, please do not forget to verify that the module for your camera-lens combination isn’t already available or is under development.

We take this list into account during our planning as one aspect among various criteria used to determine our priorities for the creation of new modules (other factors include worldwide sales, the popularity of the camera and lens, the potential correction contribution, etc.).
