Peter I am not sure I buy your counter argument. I use 64 bit CNX2 and do not find the batch process "Clunky". Nikon makes Nikon cameras and unless they went out of business, highly unlikely, they have no competition in the manufacture of Nikon cameras. Since the ability to process NEF's is key to them selling the cameras, I cannot see how they could abandon the task of reading and processing NEF's. Is CNX2 a bit behind the times, maybe for some? I find it meet all my needs. I don't have to fool with XMPs or keeping my NEFs in the Adobe data base or converting to DING and all the other processes that I think have more risk. If Nikon stopped making updates to CNX2 tomorrow, I still have a fully working version of CNX2 that will continue to process all the NEFS I have ever taken from my D200 and D700. While I also don't expect Adobe to go out of business, they have to work with all the DSLR brands out there so the risk of problems in their code I believe is much higher than continued updates for bugs and new cameras that CNX2 has to contend with. All that said, each person has to make their choice of what work flow they want and what features are most important to them. For many that choice will be LR. For me it is primarily CNX2 with an occasional visit to Photoshop CS6 Extended.
