Stay alert, control the camera, save photos

What RAW converter do you use? I found DxO with PRIME noise reduction improved my 7DII at high iso considerably and then the 5DSR as well when I went to that. Keith Reeder swears by Noise Ninja for his 7DII, and that it is superb as well. DPP is pretty awful and I don't like PS. I too like the 5DIV very much, and it is more resilient to being slightly out of focus than is the 5DSR - when the 5DSR is not spot on, the image deteriorates badly.You are a great defender of the 5DS And the 5DSR and you back it up with real world photographs that show the great performance you get out of it.
My 5DSR is fine at low ISO. I don't like it all at high ISO 1600 or above. I find the the 5D IV much better in that ISO range. The images just look better straight out of the camera. I find recovering shadows with the 5DIV much better too. I don't condemn the 5DSR outright. It's very good at ISO 100 in studios and doing landscapes in reasonable light on a tripod where I can keep the ISO low. I always wonder if I just have a bad copy. I was an early adopter (which I'm not sure is a good idea, I'm sure Canon have to fix the cameras a little bit after initial complaints come in).
