I just realized that DNG.files are like 3x faster in develop mode to load than canon's own cr2.. Anyone else here who noticed that?
I don't use LR4 yet (I am getting a system that will run it shortly) but I do use DNG because the 5D3 is not supported in LR3. That said, when using DNG it helps to use the conversion setting of 'Embed Fast Load Data'.

And when you do your DNG conversion, go to Preferences and check "Embed Fast Load Data".

On paper DNG is supposed to be as good as RAW, but does it have "all" the information that a RAW has? Has anyone done tests on this?
Yes and No.  It depends on which of the three versions of DNG you select.  If you pick the one with the RAW files embeded, everything is there.  Otherwise, some of the Canon unique tags may not be there.  Lightroom doesn't use these anyway, so it makes no difference.
You can also open DPP and batch save the files to photoshop or wherever you want them.  They will be converted to tiff files,which are more universally used than DNG.  You will still lose the Canon specific tags.

Thanks!

What about ability to recover highlights/ shadows... RAWs seem to have much more DR than jpegs... will this be compromised in TIFF or other renders?

Tons of very accomplished photographers are onboard with DNG. Scott Kelby, Chris Orwig and Jared Platt come to mind. You can embed post processing information into a DNG after the fact - in LR just do a CTRL-S and what ever edits you have done get burned into the DNG.

Embedding CR2's inside the DNG is a waste of space - the files will be huge. Some people would say that you may lose the Canon special sauce but at the same time they rely on Lightroom or Bridge to render their CR2 RAW files which is the same potion that Adobe uses to convert to DNG.

I have yet to see a difference between DNG and CR2 but YMMV.
