having had the camera for a week now, I really really really don't like DPR. Lightroom is a far superior product and I hope they have an update soon.
I like it for its quikview feature. It opens up fast and is great for viewing rating and deleting. Also good if you want to convert without any additional auto corrections on top of what the camera does because the default conversion is the same as an in camera JPEG.
So why not just shoot jpeg? If all we're doing is using DPR to convert from raw to jpeg, then why bother.
I'm using DPP to convert them from RAW to Tiff with the minimum processing possible. But with DPP I have no idea whats really going on "under the hood". Then I review them in Adobe Bridge. The TIFFs that interest me go through Camera Raw into Photoshop. Probably not the best way but so far it's working OK. I'll bring them all into lightroom once there is an update available. If someone has a better workflow I'd love to here about it. The OOC JPGs looked OK but really weren't suitable for evaluating a new camera.
That is my plan also. Zero out the settings in DPP. I plan on using the lens optimizer in DPP also. I use DPP to sort, then to LR for final cuts and file naming and organization. Back to DPP to convert to tiffs then PS to finish PP and convert to jpegs.
