I'm interested in Topaz especially for my older Coolpix's but I'm curious if you find any value in the Bundle.

Mac, Aperture 3, Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6, D3200 and P7000 are my primary tools.


I'm not Reilly, but I bought the bundle on an offer some time ago. Some cool stuff in there (if you like that sort of thing - I personally do).

I'm currently of the opinion that the D5100 is THE best camera I've ever used for some of the extreme topaz effects. It even seems to beat the D800 for some things, the sensor output seems more consistent and you get less banding artefacts (not the D800 is particularly bad at all to start with!). Some Topaz filters push the sensor output to the limits! in fact, I use something like 'dark charcoal' as my benchmark filter, to see how crappy/clean a sensor is and how it will respond to extreme PP.
