No one uses Lightroom?
I use LR and have just upgraded to LR4. PSE has a limited functionality version of the RAW converter in LR and ACR. I don't know if it produces the same results, but I found it too limited for my liking. LR and ACR use a database of lenses to allow for distortion, vignetting and CA removal. It won't be as god as Canon's own database but I find it works quite well and does a good job with vignetting. I use it a lot to fix barrel distortion on the 24-105L. LR4 does a great job with NR and detail extraction and the process 2012 offers a lot of enhanced functionality and improved results over 2010 process. DxO's RAW converter probably has a more comprehensive database as you download profiles according to camera. latest version seems very good too, but of course you'd need to wait for update to support newest cameras like G1X.
The one thing that seems good about the new DPP is the DLO functionality, so I may have to use both programs in the future.
