This is fine if you have a computer with good specs. Photoshop/lightroom likes plenty of power. However a lot of members will be struggling now with the files from the D700 and D7000. this means updating ram or even a new computer. Thom Hogan seems to dismiss the upgrading of ram and specs in a rather dismissive way.
but you're going to do that anyway ;~). If not this year, maybe next or the year after.
It all adds up with respect to cost and I fear some who will buy the camera won't have added in the extra costs?
