Bill, good information. Is this also the case with Canon DSLR's? Sure
seems to be a customer unfriendly position for a camera manufacturer.

The problem is that the precise location and interpretation of camera
settings data within NEF files is proprietary information that Nikon
does not share with 3rd party software publishers like Adobe.

Yes, it's true. Canon does not release the detailed specifications of their raw files either. All the third-party converters are simply guessing (reverse-engineering) the files, but there's a lot of proprietary information "hidden" in the files that is simply ignored by the third-party converters.
