And if I dont save them in Tiff, but I save the metadata in LR and I simply drag it from the LR timeline to PS is the same or better with the TIFF?

Now here it comes what I am interested in.
Where and when should I do the sharpening/ noise reduction?
Usually I do it in LR and I put Sharpening to 30-40 and NR if needed even until 60, I change the detail and contrast.
A big time saver for me is to set LR to use default import settings based on the image ISO.
I shot a test image at each ISO of the camera (5D3) and then adjusted the noise reduction and sharpness settings of each image to my preferred settings (for the ISO).
I then saved the settings for each image as the default import settings for each ISO.
Now whenever I import new images into LR they automatically get my preferred settings for noise reduction and sharpness based on the image ISO.
When you say it's in Auto, I am assuming you are not meaning the Green square Auto mode? You won't have any control over the AF in that mode.
In AV, TV, M mode, you should be able to switch between the modes by pressing the AF button on the top, back right of your camera body, and then immediately pressing the small, m.Fn button above the shutter, which should cycle you through the different AF areas. You can choose with button or control to use for switching between the modes, in Autofocus menu AF4, AF Area Selection Method. Go into that option and choose whether to use the M.Fn button or the Main Dial.
Hope that helps
I guess it would be nice to have the new 8-15mm zoom on site...but the cost, weight and size (vs. amount of use) deter me from that purchase...although apparently the IQ is better. (Have looked for side-by-side image comparisons on the web @ 15mm...but am coming up empty )
I own both the 15f/2.8 Canon & the 8-15f/4 Canon, I use them Primarily for Underwater Photography, the 8-15f/4 @ 15mm is streets ahead of the much older 15f/2.8.
