DPP and Nik Dfine

IMO from the days of the 10D I've not found ACR nearly as good as the results DPP can bring. Most of it IMO, has to do with skin tones and sharpening/noise. DPP hands down wins.

Just my take. I also use Noise Ninja or Nik's Dfine to reduce noise.

There have been a lot of interesting posts regarding this topic...
mostly stating that ACR does a bad job applying NR to 50D raw images.

I've never used DPP - been a big Lightroom user since it came out.
My question is this: to get proper NR using Lightroom, is it just a
matter of adjusting the amounts of NR applied? or is it that the NR
system in Lightroom doesn't work as well as DPP? Is it amount
appplied or the process each app uses?

I guess I'm hoping I can stick with Lightroom with a little more
tweaking to get the results I need.

Thanks...
