Does that mean that the current version of DPP will also yield higher image quality from .CR2 files created by a 30D than the DPP of 2007 ?

I'm not sure. That would also depend on if Canon is using the same code for all demosaic or if they have custom code for different sensor generations.

And it also depends on what improvements Canon has made to their demosaic code.

If the algorithms in DPP have improved, then most definitely yes.
It depends what kind of work went into DPP.

The most obvious contender for improvement would actually be noise reductions.

I don't use lightroom, but i think i should start to use it again after i see many here using it even more than photoshop, i am happy with Photoshop and DPP that i rarely would like to use Lightroom, and with Hasselblad files there is Phocus, but i use PS also for that file, and i am thinking to try P1 Capture One over Lightroom.

But jumping ship when LR6 is just around the corner makes no sense to me. Who knows what it will bring?

LightRoom Creative Cloud?

That would - for me - definitely be enough to dump LR as I have been forced to dump other Adobe products. I'm not paying Adobe's subscriptions.

One thing I really, really fail to understand is - Who gives a flying fig what software others use?

Hmm. One thing to factor in to any software purchase is - is the product going to survive until next year? That depends on sustainable sales numbers.

Other people have to like it too. If they don't, it's history.

I simply don't need anything else. DPP and Photoshop together do everything I need.

Process one image and copy that processing to the next 40 images.

The rumors are......,rumors. Unjustified, unsubstantiated, unreliable and unintelligent. Also several more "un"s.

Hardly unjustified nor unintelligent. Not reliable, yet.

With that attitude I would say I'm fairly certain you follow peer pressure.
A best example of people being sheep is the apple mobile phone - especially the first version. It was lacking the most fundamental abilities a £/$ 5 mobile phone had, people bought it...

That's interesting. I looked at that phone and decided it was nowhere near good enough (despite always using Macs). I looked at the iPhone 5 and decided the same thing. Last year I bought my first smartphone having waited 6 months even for its launch. It wasn't an Apple and I'm sure I made the right choice.

I hate making any tech purchase without the research and even more hate getting it wrong.

There's what I call "The salesman's answer". You ask "is this any good?" The answer is "We sell a lot of them". The salesman thinks he answered the question you asked but he didn't. But in his world, he did.

I know the feeling - I like to know as much as possible about the things I buy too.
(There isn't anything apple branded on me or in my family but people around me, friends and colleagues use them.)

Heck, IF all "goes well", I know a product as well as owning it before I own it...

Quite simple to do that in DPP. After processing the first file, choose Edit (or right click)/ Copy recipe to clipboard. Next select all images and Edit (or right click)/ Paste recipe to selected image. Click on Yes in the popup window "Apply recipe to all selected images". Done.

I'll give it a go. Though I have absolutely no clue what a "right click" is.

Well, there is a line of computers where the designers recognized that human beings on average have five fingers on each hand, and so is able to handle more than a single button even if already consuming fingers for holding the mouse. :)

Clicking the "right" button rather than the "left" button on your mouse. "Right click" will usually bring up another menu in most applications.

If you use a Mac, right-clicking is done by either holding the ctrl key while clicking or, if you have the Apple mouse with the touch-sensitive surface (and having two fingers on the top), you lift the left finger and click with the right finger. It detects you are on the right side of the mouse and interprets it that way.

Here is a good question - that I would like to see a debate about.

Why do we all end up using Lightroom?

Because it's the best tool for the job.
