I am also an NX2 user because I only shoot raw, and nothing else processes Nikon NEF files as well in my opinion. The main problem I see with Aperture is it will not allow me to use NX2 as an external editor without converting the NEFs to TIFF in the process.

I have two requirements on any photo archive software:

(1) It must be able to send RAW files to an external editor and receive the same back.

(2) It must always display/print/email/upload the embedded JPEG previews in NEF files and *not* create its own previews instead.

Aperture can not do either of these. iPhoto can at least do (1).

So my solution at present is to use photo mechanic and NX2, and store my jpeg results in iphoto. I really like iPhoto!

I find it interesting that people om pare iPhoto with LR and Aperture. iPhoto is a free Mickey Mouse photo organiser with a rubbish filing system. LR and aperture are grown u editors and more.
