A7 in camera processing vs. RAW conversion of external program

Just curious.. the only program I have to convert the Sony RAW format is their Image Data Converter ver. 4.  Lightroom 4.4 will not recognize the A7 RAW..

When you use the IDC ver 4. to convert the RAW to .jpg (or TIFF) do you think the output is better, same or worse than the Sony in camera conversion to .jpg?

On my NEX-7, the in camera jpg conversion was not as good as the program.

Any other programs to convert the Sony RAW? (without paying an arm and a leg for a new program?.. I hear that Lightroom 5 has a converter, but that it is beta and not as good as the Sony program)

My only bitch with Sony is that I wish they played better in the RAW sandbox with others..

Thanks, looking forward to your suggestions!
