MPEG2 output in Pinnacle, Premiere and Vegas

I am considering an editor which will output DVD/MPEG2 use build-in encoder (lazy, I know seperate encoder could be better)..
I just wonder, base on your experience, which one is the best within these products (Pinnacle DV Studio, Adobe Premiere and Sony Vegas Video)?, especially, which one will have better result for lower rate, say 4Mb/s?

Thanks!

If your are really lazy then go for a Canopus Storm or Matrox hardware based cards that output in realtime to DV, analogue or MPEG2!! Both use Premiere or Canopus gives you the option of EDius with Procoder software encoder viewed as one of the best MPEG2 encoders.
OR do what I do and output from Prremiere timeline to a standalone DVD recorder ( in my case a Panasonic E30 PC output from Canopus DVRaptor RT2 realtime card ), put DVD in PC author with DVDlab to add menus etc and then burn to DVD. I have found this to be faster and have better encode quaility at the low bit rates needed to get 2 hours on a DVD.
