Most of us won't care about the difference. In fact, most of us don't care that LR isn't "perfect". Heads up for you here, nothing on these forums will ever be "perfect" for the tech guys here. They don't do photography. they do science and they always need the next best thing. Iridient or LR or all the others (I use JPEGs) are as good as most of us need. Leave the perfect to those here who don't do photography.

One of the biggest loads of BLEEP I've come across here in a while.

No, it is not.  At this point, if your photographs don't look good in Lightroom/C1, they're not going to look good in Iridient either.

IQ doesn't make a photograph.  The composition and emotion conveyed make a photograph.

At this point, being anal about IQ in the different processors is just like being anal about photography "rules."  It's for the try-hard amateur.  These people don't have the brain for art.  That's why they create superficial criteria, so they can attempt to quantify it and then critique it.

LR/C1/Iridient/Photo Ninja are all fine now.  One may be technically better than the other in a given situation, but the gap is small enough that it doesn't matter.  You can't ruin a photograph with any of them.  If you don't like the photos you get from Lightroom, C1, or whatever, then take better photos.
