I am quite happy with the current version of NX2 (fast, efficient, simple), and I rarely felt the need to use Photoshop or Lightroom.
That will definitely change once we get NX-D. In fact, I will probably have to use PS/LR for just about every picture, which means I might as well drop NX-D completely.
Pity. Clearly Nikon does not understand their customers AT ALL.
PS: still waiting for a D400...
psn: If you're complaining about the price, it's not a lens for you. There's a very high probability you can't afford it even if it's any lower. Move along.
What are you, a billionaire? Or just plain arrogant? I see no compelling reason why this lense should be so much more expensive than the Nikon or Canon equivalent. It's not a matter of being able to afford it, this is simply a rip-off.
