That is a computer issue not DNG or PS. You probably need a new codec.
"I want to use bridge. KEYWORDS EXIF etc"
Bridge is not going to show them (Raw files) if it is in CS6 of PS. You will need to get Bridge from CC to do that.

Adobe won't read the new 80D Raw and says to convert to DNG. Canon DPP does not read DNG. Round and round...
You don't need DNG, it's only Adobe telling you to convert it because it cannot cope with your files.
Your camera produces raw cr2 files which work directly with DPP.

"There is no Codec update"
The Win8.1 codec group is included in Win10, so there is a codec for cr2 files, but it might not work with the latest cameras. I don't have an 80D but it works with my 1DX which is not listed so d/l the update might work for the 80D as well. It won't hurt.

Except DPP4 is not Photoshop.
You simply do any adjustments to the raw file in DPP then if you need to you can export the file to Photoshop as a jpg or tiff file. For the vast majority of pictures you don't even need Photoshop.

That is your opinion not a fact. If you are pleased with DPP all the best to you. Glad it works well for you but the entire photographic world uses LR and/or PS. Not DPP. I grant you DPP4 is a great amateur program particularly if you are a completely Canon user.
Don't get me wrong I am not an Adobe fan club member. Far from it after they went to there idiotic rental mode. But the facts are as they are. There is Photoshop and then there is everything else.
