Actually, once it fires up so do I but I find the Updater intrusive (I run Vista x64 Ultimate under a Standard User Account) and for some reason (finger trouble on my part no doubt) as often as not it takes forever to open local files - not a problem when I used it under XP Pro on the same hardware.
As for the RAW converter issue, I see that 16 bit TIFF is available from Canon's DPP program if I want to avoid JPEG until post processing is complete.
Have you used 16 bit TIFF? I assume it is completely lossless.
