Re: Sony Image Data Converter - how good is it?

I shoot RAW + JPEG to have the best of both worlds. If the output is fine, I don't have to do any processing at all. If I need to adjust things, I use lightroom 90-95% of the time.

With lightroom there is no worry about the conversion to JPEG - although it seems to lighten Sony files way too much, that easily correctable. It has excellent noise reduction.

If I need to tweak DR, I will give Image Data Converter a go, for major processing I use Photoshop CS5, but that is pretty rare these days.
