Rick I would say it is a very rational reaction. If you didn't want total control of your image, you would just shoot JPEG and let the camera do all the heavy lifting. I am glad Eric did the additional effort as I think I understand it a whole lot better now than I thought i did. I had been under the impression that the bin shifting was also applied to the RAW file because Nikon had told me that the RAW file was changed by ADL, but since it is not completely reversible as shown in Eric's tests, I now see that I had misunderstood what the Nikon tech had been telling me and that it had to be a non destructive edit step that was applying the bin shifting. That also makes sense along with Thom Hogan's comments that non Nikon tool Kit post processors could not properly compensate for the shift algorithm, though I think it was that comment that had me thinking it was baked in the RAW file. In the end we should all strive to understand what our camera features do and then decide for ourselves which ones we see value in based upon our work flows.
