Are people happy with ACR processing on D800 NEFs?

I just got a D800 to replace my Canon 5DII. I have been quite happy with ACR processing for the raw files from the Canon and I have gotten quite spoiled by not having to use a separate raw conversion program before editing my photos in PS. Thus, raw into ACR into PS is my preferred work flow.

I have not had enough time to play with the D800 yet or to compare ViewNX2 conversions to ACR conversions. Thus, I would like to hear about other folks' experience.

I will say I am disappointed that Nikon charges extra for CaptureNX2 while Canon gives away their equivalent raw editing software, despite the fact that Canon has added numerous features and fuctions to the software over the years. Nonetheless, if ACR is a good tool for D800 NEFs, then CaptureNX2 is a moot point.
