NX2--how I am going to miss thee. It's Nikon's end of support for NX2 that has caused me to delve into LR and PS. It's been a struggle so far, but I'm beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel.

j_photo: in your migration from NX2, ever try or consider the Capture One raw converter?

One of the things that distinguishes Capture One from ACR / Lightroom: Capture One develops and renders RAW with a distinct, custom color gamut for each camera they support. It's an interesting philosophical difference with Adobe, one that contributes to *radically* different default results and adjustment "math."

(For what it's worth, I think the Capture One results tend to look a lot like punchy Nikon defaults--not necessarily my cup of tea, but I know some people love it.)

I tried it and for my style, they were a bit too punchy. I'm sure for some subjects, it would look great. I'm sticking with CNX2 for RAW until I end up wanting to replace the D800 I just bought. Probably will be a while Maybe by then, nikon will get back into the RAW software game?
