Yes the latest version of Capture NX is 2.2.6 and was recently released but unfortunately this update does not include compatibility for users of i7 Core processors. Again, apologies for any inconvenience caused by this."
"Yes, when saving an altered file in View NX2 the resulting file size will appear to be smaller than the original. Unfortunately there is currently no option to adjust this, but Nikon Japan are aware of customers concerns with regards this usage.
With regards to Capture NX2, i'm sorry but unfortunately at this stage there have been no announcements as to an update release date."
Capture NX2 is £176 ($275) in the UK and doesn't work with my set up and no intended fix.

Curious: what do they mean "not compatible".
At least on my OS X running on an i7 processor CNX 2.2.6 runs very well.
Thanks for that input. I am still running a Core Duo E6700 with 8 GB of RAM and Win 7 64 bit with no problems with CNX2 2.2.6. I am sure this will all be resolved in future updates, but this is the first I have heard of anyone not being able to run CNX2 with an I7 chip.
i think this just means that nx2 can't take advantage of multiple cores or extended memory. i have a 980x i7 processor with 12gigs....nx2 runs in one core and has the same memory problems that it always had on my core duo system...but, because my system is overall faster and win 7 64bit is so much better, nx2 runs MUCH more efficiently than previously (but, as i said, it still has that very annoying 'out of memory' issue, despite 12 gigs, etc)... mark www.broadwallphotography.com
