After bringing the Nik Collection back to the market with the software’s first stable version with customer support in June 2018, DxO is expanding the plugin suite with over 40 new creative presets and high-resolution monitor support for Windows. In addition, the Nik Collection 2 now comes with DxO PhotoLab ESSENTIAL Edition, DxO’s recently released advanced RAW photo editing software.

The Nik Collection 2 has added 42 new "En Vogue" presets to its original set of 156: 10 new recipes for Color Efex Pro, 10 new black and white presets to Silver Efex Pro, 12 new HDR presets to HDR Efex Pro, and 10 new tool combinations to Analog Efex Pro.

The "En Vogue" series was created in collaboration with Dan Hughes, a highly respected lecturer of photography at Rochester Institute of Technology and a former instructor with Nik Software.

"I was honoured to be a part of the expansion of the Nik Collection by DxO. The plugin suite has helped promote the art of photography, and the addition of new effects has significantly increased its potential by offering all photographers new creative opportunities." says Dan Hughes.

As well as new presets, Nikon Collection 2 also brings support for high-resolution monitors (HiDPI) by improving the interface for better readability in Windows. The software is also compatible with DxO PhotoLab 2.3 ESSENTIAL where users can directly access the plugins from their workspace via a dedicated button or the drop-down menu. 

DxO PhotoLab users will also be happy to hear that DxO PhotoLab 2.3 can now process files from Canon EOS RP and Olympus OM-D E-M1 X. It has also added more than 500 new optical modules to its library, bringing its total number of camera/lens combinations to 47,500.

Having tried the new version over the last few days I've come to the conclusion that it's a very, nay, extremely expensive upgrade if you only want the Nik collection.
It seems to be a marketing ploy to get people to switch to Photolab 2.3.
If you only want the Nik plug-ins anything more than 10 for the upgrade from last years version would IMHO be expensive.
