There is the old DPP is best to use because all other converters are reversed engineered. I fully believe that and this was the main reason I was also a die hard DPP user until about a year ago. DPP can't touch PS/LR highlight recovery and noise reduction as well. Adobe has grown in leaps and bounds while DPP just kinda chugs along. Still a great free powerful converter. If DPP had all the features LR has and improved HR and NR I'd pay for it.

Lightroom is not a reverse engineering of anything. You may think and believe this as long as you like and is still not true

I'm not a software engineer so I have absolutely no clue. I can only go by what I have read here about this subject since 2005. I have not spent a lot of time researching as I just worked with what was pleasing to my eye. When you do look at images at 200 to 300% you can see the patterns are different between Canon and Adobe. Mosaic patterns? What did keep me with DPP were the skin tones but like I said Adobe has come a long way.

I try to maintain an open mind and welcome explanations.
