I usually use cnx2 as a starting baseline, except for people shots.
In cnx2 I try to balance out the exposure, use moire reduction if it is high iso/noise shot. Some details recovery while turning on/off adl, some sharpening. Upoint only for fun or extreme recovery, then opening in Photoshop. If it trys to save changes, I say no since it usually stores a tif along the way while opening in Photoshop. Also, if I really need, I can make photoshop open processed cnx2 file in acr (non-nef file) for further tuning.
Now for people shots I just use acr since it does a better job of smoothing skin tones and harsh lighting on skin.
Thaz it folkz

i am a people shooter, and i never use LR, because the terrible skintone rendering, cnx is the best if iq is importend, including skintones!
