Re: Disagree 100%

I have the same experience:
I hate Capture for it's user interface, but love it for it's image quality.
I love Adobe Lightroom for it's UI and hate it for it's IQ.

When I work with Capture NX I run out of the room screaming after 30 minutes.

A saboteur from Canon could not have made a better job to create a really bad UI for capture that drives users crazy. (don't laugh, it's no joke)

What I need is Adobe Lightroom with the RAW engine of Nikon Capture NX.

Especially noise is 2 stops worse in Lightroom and you have to turn wheels for 10 Minutes to get the same results as out of cam jpgs.

I could live with the lower speed of Capture, because it saves settings in the NEF file and not in an external database.

I think the bad IQ and the high noise of ACR ist the reason why Nikon gives away Capture NX for free with D3 and D300. Otherwise nobody would buy Capture and Nikon would keep the bad image for "noisy cameras".
