Not at the moment, but I read that they are going to add more camera support over time.

Cannot check this myself these weeks. Would be surprised if DPP does not support 5DII which is not that old yet

I know I'm not the only person who thinks this is weird. But yes, I think it is very weird. I would expect most people using the currently supported cameras (EOS-1D C, EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III, EOS 6D) already use LR or PS or DXo and so forth to process Raw files. So why would anyone need to use DPP? I've used it experimentally years ago and quickly dismissed it. I have heard over those years of others saying that they like it simply because it renders the raws better than acr. I dunno. I still can't see myself slogging through DPP and then exporting to PS for further tweaks. Personally, I think Canon should have made DPP compatible with "lower" cameras (not calling them lesser but you know what I mean) in order to encourage raw shooters and those just getting SLRs to want to experiment and maybe even buy more expensive cameras. Or, more likely, I'm just way off on this. It's still weird in any case.

I will continue use LR5 and don't expect DPP4 processes RAW files better overall.  LR5 still has lots more features and equally importantly a database.  I have seen PhotoNinja and CaptureOne Pro have advantage in handling noise/grain slightly better but the difference is not obvious unless pixel-peeping and recently I found by using different mask/sharpness/detail in sharpening the difference is almost gone.  But I still use DPP to sort photos into respective folders initially before importing into LR5, and process individual quick photos that are not important to be in database.
