D810 and Lightroom: Quick How To

Until official support for Lightroom comes out for the D810, there is an extra step involved, but it only takes a moment. None of the documentation makes this very clear, and the link is somewhat hidden, so I thought a How-To was in order.

Note: This is not the noise-ridden Adobe Camera Raw, this is a better way.

Step 1:
Download the (beta) DNG converter beta here.

Step 2:
Convert your .NEF to .DNG. By default, it doesn't touch your .NEFs so that you have them for later once Adobe updates.

Note: Small Raw is still not supported

Step: 3:
Import the .DNGs into Lightroom
