I have the new Canon S100 so I needed to get the newer version of Lightroom 3.6 so that I could edit my RAW files taken with the camera.
I imported all the photos from my camera into a folder and catalog using Lightroom.
Upon editing trying to edit the photos, I noticed a significant quality decrease in several areas. Specifically, a dramatic increase in reds in many of the photos.

Any photo that already had a little bit of warmth to it exploded with red. Literally looks like any photo was taken in a furnace with bright red lights illuminating everything. By turning the temperature all the way down and messing with the colors it makes the photos decent to look at, but obviously produces other problems with photo quality.

It could be an issue with reds, however it may also be a problem with it overexposing the photos.
With photos that don't contain a lot of red already it makes parts of the photo a lot brighter than they normally would be. I've also noticed significant amounts of noise in Lightroom compared to what can be seen in-camera.
