Re: there is no nikon software support, IMO

The "raw conversion" part is what gets Nikon in trouble. They want to

been the source of problem after problem.

i'm a bit surprised you stopped here (ignoring the irrelevant part i snipped) without going into what i expect is the primary reason they want to control it -- Nikon can't go to market with a new body without software supporting the latest RAW. if i were any level of control freak, that would be the first point i would control for -- as i believe Nikon does.

if they don't believe they can reliably solve this problem via contracting externally, despite all the past issues, they are making the right choice. ...dav
