A quick question about lightroom 3 do you to convert your RAW file into .JPG or whatever is the best conversion of RAW into something else so you can import it into Lightroom 3?

would you rather convert your RAW files into JPG or is there something else that can be used to convert it without losing any details of the image.

Edit: would you rather use the adobe products (LR3 and CS4/5) than the DSLR editing software?

You can import RAW files into Lightroom as they are. You don't need to convert them to anything to import into Lightroom. I convert my RAW files into DNG files when I import them into Lightroom but aside from that, you can just import the RAW files as they are.

TIFF is the best as it's lossless.
