It could be that DPP is using a full size embedded JPEG for the preview while rendering. Canon JPEGS use quite strong sharpening and steep contrast curves, which both increase impression of detail. I suppose DPP uses lower sharpening & contrast defaults?

In LR the standard is to have a medium sized (I.e. smaller than original) JPEG which, in 100% view looks soft. When LR is finishing rendering the RAW file, the resulting preview certainly is sharper.

Hope that helps...
