BTW, the price of PN is close to the price of PS CC ownership. It is a bit embarrassing. Yes, your outdated PN will continue to work even without upgrade but it won't support your new shiny X-T3

Photoshop was that way. You may not feel the need to update to CSx every 18 months but if you purchased a new camera you would need the latest for RAW support of that camera.

I agree there are times when PN is best and times when it is not. Having two RAW converters may be the ideal way to compliment each others strengths and weaknesses.

I agree completely.  As of now I own most of the major converters: LR5, Aperture (already owned), Iridient, Capture One Pro 7, and PhotoNinja.   Each of them does something better for certain types of images.  I'm finding this true not only for my X-Trans but also my Canon CR2 RAW files.  Until I started using all of these, I had no idea how different each mathematical approach can be with any brand of RAW files.

Compared to the rest of my gear/computers/software, RAW software is actually pretty cheap.  Just like with lenses, it's nice to have a specialized variety of choices for every situation.
