Recommendations for a RAW converter for Canon

It's not the most space efficient, but with the low cost of mass storage today, it's not really an issue.
If one wants to have universally accessible files (esp. in the future), DNG is better than any proprietary formats.
It also allows one to use older software versions without being forced to upgrade (as in David's case).

DNG loses everything a manufacturer stores besides what you call "RAW data". That makes DNG worse than most proprietary formats, also worse than CR2/3.
