Sigma SPP or Iridient for XF3 files?

I'm finding that I use the Sigma Merrell cameras more and more. I shoot raw + jpegs and find myself using SPP to convert to 16 bit Tiff files and then finishing them off in LR. SPP works okay but is very slow to load and not very precise in many of the adjustments. I've played with Iridient with the Fuji RAF files and it seems to do a very nice job and load somewhat faster. The last thing I want to do is buy another piece of software that won't get used. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions? I'm on a Mac so the Faststone viewer is off the table.
Thanks,
paul

Iridient is faster, but still not as fast as with other file types. I feel that SPP is "better" but just a hassle to use. ID offers more options plus I have a lot of processing profiles I can use.

In general, I love ID!

I get on great with SPP on my quite slow 4 year old iMac .
If I can put up with the slowness of the Merrill's in the field. I can live with SPP

It's amusing that I can be so deliberate when shooting and so impatient when I get to the computer. I guess I want to get done so I can go shoot some more.:thiagree:
