Thanks for your feedback. I am also very open to Lt2 after reading so many good reviews. I read it is more user friendly which is very important. But does it correct for lens geometry and does it have some kind of automatic picture optimization? I want to step up to RAW in incremental fasion without being discouraged and overwhelmed from the beginning. Sorry for these basic questions but I am going to Africa next month with my relatively new D90 and 18-200VR and have to make decision if to shoot RAW or JPEG. Instinct tells me that the former would be the proper use of digital camera.
