OK- So I'm totally late to this thread... but Raw processing is my full time business. I started out using Capture One when Photoshop was still simply "CS."
I liked C1, but it took me a little while to get used to it.
Pros: background processing was implemented well.
Cons: It wasn't as intuitive and fast as I hoped and it left a trail of messy folders, subfolders and working files.
Then I moved on to Bibble... Just not fast or user friendly. Bought the app, used it for a few thousand images, hated it, wish I could have got my money back.
Once CS2 came out and ACR was pumped with steroids, I gave it a go and never looked back. I love its integration with Bridge and the whole suite. It's got plenty of horsepower and speed!
I started my own post production company and our business runs IS Raw processing. Though Aperture and Capture One are amazing products, I couldn't imagine trying to run through the volume with any other app.

Any Adobe Camera Raw users had a chance to play with the new version of Capture One?
We're sticking with ACR because of the XMP compatibility that my clients love, but just wondered if anyone has some words of wisdom!

Adobe Lightroom (ACR 4.4) with DNG conversion. I've been using it or a bit. It works perfectly.
What Raw Processor?
I used ACR, then became a Lightroom v1.x beta tester and currently use only Lightroom. Now that I shoot with a Nikon D300 and it came with a copy of Capture NX I will occasonally use the Capture NX software. it has some features the others do not.
Breeze Browser Pro and DPP
I tried Lightroom, for some reason it wouldn't work on one of my machines. So I then tried Capture 1, I really thought that was the one I'd buy.
However, I photograph dog agilty, I put the pictures up on my website, http://dogshots.biz
Breeze Browser Pro has a great feature, with 1 click you can make these fanstastic web galleries.
It's a really fast viewer, it can do some RAW conversion, but if I have a picture or series that need much work, I use DPP.

Question: how do I know if a Canon lens is 'Grey Market' unit vs regular US product??
Buy from B&H and you won't need to worry.
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand
As a product they're identical, it's just the way the item was imported that's the difference. It should say whether it's grey or otherwise when it's advertised.
