if you do, for what reason other than to reduce file size?

also, is any information lost during the conversion or not? i mean image information, not metadata etc.

thank you in advance.

Yup - because my version of Photoshop is too old for my camera, and my OS not new enough and/or my version of Photoshop not new enough to get an update to ACR to work with the NEFs. At some point I'll have to upgrade everything - computer (because it's 32-bit architecture, which won't be enough for the latest Photoshop), OS (because muine is too old to support even the latest DNG converter), and software (because the next camera will be too new for what I've got).
