I am not sure I agree

I consider my collection of edited NEFs to be vulnerable because only Capture NX2 can read those NEFs. Not even View NX2 can export a JPG out of these NEFs! If Nikon/Nik discontinue Capture NX2 (quite plausible given what we've seen over the past couple of years), what is one to do? I'd hate to try and use the clunky Capture NX2 batch processor to create TIFFs out of all NEFs I have across all folders...

It is hard to imagine that files modified by LR (sidecars, database, etc.) hvae a less stable future than Capture NX2-edited NEFs. There are many more LR users out there and I would therefore guess many more options and positive eventualities.

Cheers,
Peter
