Re: I have changed my mind.

Something else. When comparing conversions I noticed that Capture was a little "rougher" textured - which suggested that it was using a little more sharpening than ACR. It took me a VERY long time to balance the files. Turning all sharpening off and all noise reduction off in both systems takes time. Although I could basically make both files appear almost identical in sharpness and noise reduction (now THAT was work) I seem to prefer the more aggressive sharpening of Capture in default mode as it really doesn't show until 100% - which means it probably won't show on large prints.

The kicker for me was the histograms. I HATE losing information.
By the way, Capture is still slow - even with my 3.5 G overclocked X6800 chip.
