G1 X - From RAW to JPEG - Question on RAW converters and Workflow

No, I am NOT starting a thread on this topic!!!

Next week, I will start shooting with the G1 X. The good news: Capture One 6.4.x can read G1 X RAW files. The bad news: it looks like it cannot do lens correction from the box.

The result: Capture One is not as useable as DPP, which produces, in terms of geometry, at least, a much better picture. (Sorry I cannot share the picture because it is copyrighted.) See DOL topic.

The ugly: I am a long time user of Lightroom (3.6), to do my imports, keywords and overall picture management. LR also has a built-in lens adjustment, which may or may not work on G1 X (unless I spend US$80 to find out). Of course 3.6 does NOT read G1 X RAW files...

my question:

does it make sense to:

  1. Import RAW in DPP (3.12.40)
  2. Apply Reject/Stars in DPP
  3. Do some minor adjustments (WB, Picture Style, cropping/leveling) in DPP
  4. Save (in Batch) in TIFF, in case I need further adjustments and Import to Lightroom
  5. Add additional Keywords or do other final adjustments in LR
  6. Export/Publish to Web as necessary from LR (which is not as good as Capture One for JPEG compression)
