In my experience, Capture One 4 does not reveal more detail in K10D
images than Lightroom. Capture One gives the appearance of greater
detail, because it employs a very strong sharpening filter in its
default mode. Lightroom does not. If you equalize the sharpening,
there is almost no perceivable difference in fine detail. Moreover,
I much prefer the colors and overall rendering that Lightroom
delivers. There are occasional images that look better in C1-4, but
those are the exceptions to the rule.

First time I tried Lightroom, I was disgusted at the lack of detail, but then I understood that it was due to the heavy default value of "color noise reduction" in ACR/Lightroom. I set that to zero, and got the same level of detail as in PPL or Aperture.
