Well, I used the Sony software that came with the test sample a550 and it worked fine. (For my review at http://www.photocrati.com )

But yes, I guess dpreview prefers to convert with Adobe, for all reviews, for the sake of consistency.

I appreciate using something for consistency sake, but this points to one of the flaws in most reviews. It is well documented that Adobe is not the best at converting Sony .ARW. It is a 'good to know' point for any review since my guess is the vast majority of all raw images are converted using Adobe, but it cannot be the benchmark for the potential of any camera unless it is the best for that camera's format.
