>Looking for lightroom 4, I believe that current raw converter is really much better than previous versions, and even comparable to CNX2.
In every way, it is superior to NX2- it can more accurately recover highlights and shadows, it provides superior sharpening, and the color accuracy is superb. You really notice the difference if you are shooting an older camera, (like my D200).
I only use NX2 now when I am desperate and out of options. It is so flakey from a reliability standpoint, and such a memory hog, I prefer to leave it alone.
