Re: Why a different NEF for each new model?

A NEF is a dump of the unprocessed data from the sensor. It's important that it is as "raw" as possible. That is why RAW-processors need to "know" about the sensor that produced it and will need an update whenever a new sensor (and it's RAW-format) appears.

But if you don't like it, you can always convert to a more hardware independant format. Like JPEG.
