I have been shooting with a Canon T2i since they rolled out and started RAW shooting shortly afterwards.  I purchased LR3 (at the time) during one of the Adobe one-day sale and have been sold ever since.  That is, until I just purchased a Canon 6D as what I would see as a great upgrade.

Almost every reviews of the 6D is stellar and I was ready for better low light shooting, etc. that the full frame would provide.  I have been running LR4.3 since it was released in mid-December.  Although there is a difference in LR between the T2i and 6D, the differences are not significant at all.  I am shooting the same f-stop, same ISO, same shutter speed and look 1:1 in LR.  I've tried the T2i with my 18-135 EF-S and with the new 24-105L with similar results.

I decided to try DPP for the RAW and was greatly impressed with the results as compared to LR.  Huge difference with my test shots.  These shots are tough - night time on my back deck with a fresh snowfall and with floodlights on.  Shooting as high as 10,000ISO with the 6D and 6400ISO with the T2i.  I've also tried the same shot with a 580EXII on each and results are again not significantly different in LR but quite different in DPP.

I tried RAW+JPG and the JPG is almost identical to the shot in DPP.  LR remains very grainy and I can reduce this with the Details slider but with the obvious loss of detail.

Just wondering if others have seen this?  Opening each image in DPP, saving it and then importing to LR would be tedious and time consuming.  I could shoot more in JPG but this is not my desire - at all.
