>Philip >How are you finding Aperture converts NEFs with with the D600?
Hi Will, Well I haven't yet used Aperture thus my question. I've used LR off and on but only ever had a 'spare' license for LR2 which is now way too out of date to bother with.
So I've been sticking with my default workflow of simply using Adobe Bridge to browse, organize and PS (CS5) to edit. Unfortunately of course CS5 doesn't support D600 RAW (which I think is a really cheap move by Adobe but what can you do?). I'm resistant to upgrading PS CS6 because of this. One work around is one I mentioned using the DNG convertor but when I've used this path in the past I've found it tiresome to repeatedly make the conversion and deal with the original NEFs etc... I'm shooting up to 20K images a year. Add to that the nice new features of ACR 7 that I'm now missing with my 6.7 version that is still CS5 compatible.
So have been entertaining buying either LR or Aperture and getting on with one or the other.
As a longtime Mac user I am open to Aperture but well aware of the aging version vs> a nice new version of LR at twice the price.
