The good news is that my D7100 is here

The bad news, is that when I went to open up my first test shots, shot in RAW (NEF), with ACR in PS5, I found out I couldn't !

It didn't take too long to find out that Adobe has stopped camera upgrades for CS 5.

I'm not going to spend the money for a CS6 upgrade, so I'm currently trying two different options.

1. Converting the NEF's to DNG and then opening them in ACR.

2.Trying out the 60 day trial of CaptureNX2.

Leaving out an upgrade to CS6, what alternatives does everyone here think is the "best" RAW converter for the D7100.
But to cut to the chase.

These are a couple of my first shots. Both are ~ 60% crops. (1/3 the original image)

D7100, Nikon 17-55 @ 55/ f8/ ISO400

I am in awe of the lack of noise at ISO 400, coming from my D2x. Even at 100%, ISO 400 is better than ISO 100 on my D2x.
More startling is the few shots I tried in low light at ISO 1600. They looked like my D2x at ISO 400.
