I have use CS2 & CS4, LR and Captrure NX2.

Well, Capture NX2 is the best by far, at least in the 98% of the process that an amateur / non professional user do. The big advantage is the "color control points", an easy and quick way to process selective areas in your files, without the confusion of layers, masks, etc-etc. I 'm using NX2 not only for Nikon NEF files, but also for JPEGs files from my other cameras (Samsung EX1 & Olympus E-450).

But keep in mind that if you want to do advanced process techniques like manual blending & luminosity masks, you have to go with the Photoshop CS. In all other occasions, Capture NX2 is better!
