Some years ago Adobe decided to create the DNG (digital negative) raw format to address the proliferation of proprietary raw image file formats that are camera model specific. The purpose of DNG is to promote the use of a standard universal raw format in raw converters and camera models. The idea has not fully taken hold yet - and no one seems to know if it ever will. There are no apparent issues with converting your NEFs to DNG and if you do this Adobe claims you are building into your process workflow a hedge against obsolescence of the NEFs you are holding now since there is no guarantee that there will be a way to read them in the future. If you do decide to convert to DNG just make sure you keep your original NEF files intact and in their original form just in case.
