I have a problem: I have a 5dIII but have been totally dissatisfied with the amount of noise in the photos despite hearing others with the same camera rave about how they can push the ISO to 12800 without a problem. Today, for the first time, I opened a file with DPP and noticed the noise level is dramatically less than seen when using Lightroom. To date, my workflow has been to shoot in raw and import directly into LR as a DNG (todays shots were imported as CR2 as DPP does not appear to read DNG.) Both of the attached shots (100% crops) have no noise reduction applied and equal amount of sharpening. My prior camera, a 20D, did not seem to have this problem.
Any thoughts? I have spent a lot of time and effort learning LR and don't relish the idea of having to master DPP. Do I have to import with DPP and then move to LR to edit? If so, how do I do that? Is there a setting in LR that I am missing (btw, version 4.3)? Thanks!
