I have not used DPP since my early days with the 20D (3-4 years ago).
I found version 3.5 just as comparatively slow. Yes, there is the
peripheral ill & distortion correction, but I usually don't need it
unless it is for critical shots.
Even with added DNG conversion time, LR 1.4 is still faster than DPP.
I love the variety of controls on LR, such as recovery, fill light,
vibrance, masking, etc. I have not tried high ISO yet to see if DPP
is any better. I will wait for real 50D support (not the 2.1 RC)
before I upgrade LR.

It´s always a nightmare to be innovative ;-(
I run LR2.1RC and ACR4.6 in PSE6.0.

It works, but I´m not shure the Adobe RAW-converters get the most out of 50D RAW-files yet.
