I'm a new owner of a Sony Alpha α7 camera and recently captured some amazing images on a recent holiday to La Palma, Spain with an FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS lens. Unfortunately, the IQ of the RAW images in Lightroom are sub-par when compared to the output of the same images in Sony's own Image Data Converter.

Colors are a little more vivid, details are sharper.

I hope JPEG compression has little effect on my illustration.

My main question is: Instead of dealing with Image Data Converter, is there another program (such as DxO Optics Pro, for example) which will retain the amazing IQ that this camera is capable of?

You started one of the best threads yet on DPR! This will be widely bookmarked!
