Thanks for the reply (and so early in the morning too!)
You'd have to be a better in-camera photographer than I am. Since I need to apply at least some form of correction to pretty much everything I shoot, it all has to go through Bridge anyway. I would still suggest that this should be the first place you work with files.
I'm sure you're just being modest.
That said, we did things a little bit differently for a shoot this week. The shoot was an architectural shoot (with people), and I did some focus bracketing in case I needed to combine images to get max depth of field. Since critical evaluation of focus was the issue, we did metadata template and rough CR corrections in Bridge, and then made DNG files. Then we opened the images in iVMP and used the lightbox at 100% to judge critical sharpness. Match zoom and pan rocks. This was a fast and accurate way to make these judgments.
Yep makes sense. I think I'm just gone to have to do some test runs and work out what makes most sense for me - on the one hand there's the advantage of not switching back and forth between applications, set against avoiding the temptation to fiddle with the exposure and colour temperature of low-priority shots.
