actually it has everything to do with it in my case, my two clients coming up want raw straight from the camera, not a converted dng file. so they are weary about me using it. hence me wanting to use my new camera.
Wow, that is an unusual request, or at least, not usually provided!
Well if they are going to use the RAW in photoshop or LR, I think they can just use the converter. If they want to use Canon DPP, then they need to wait for Canon to fix their stuff. As far as I know, DNG is just a conversion of the data and shouldn't throw out any information, so there's no reason for them not to use DNG.
