I don't know if Lightroom and Camera Raw updates coincide, but I use CS6 and Camera Raw. The current Camera Raw plug-in is version 7.1. There is a "Release Candidate" test version 7.2 available, and it does not include the D600. Unless they somehow sneak D600 support in before 7.2 is made final, which I doubt, then I think it might be awhile, like maybe three months, just guessing.
>ACR 7.2 and LR 4.2 are now available for download, and both >support the D600.
* Please note that the support for Nikon D600 is preliminary and there is a minor risk that the appearance of your images may change when the final support for Nikon D600 is available in an upcoming release.
Hello Gary,I noticed in your response that since Adobe did not have support for the raw files yet ,you were going to use NX2. Is raw supported in that software?I do not use NX2,however when you purchase the D600, you really want to roll out and get going with the editing.I would consider PU the software if this is the case. Checking at Nikon,it is not supported yet?But I know sometimes the guys on the ground know quicker than waiting for the websites to be updated.
I use NX2 to open the nef files from my D600. I first though updated NX2 with their current update. Prior to updating NX2, the program would hang trying to open the nef file. The update fixed that. I then save the file as a tif in NX2 and open the tif file in CS6 to edit.
I was at the Adobe site,at the discussion area for D600 RAW file support and it is rumored Adobe will only support the D600 in CS 6 and will not in any earlier versions? I find this odd.Does anybody know if this is a fact?

This is a real bummer. Hello, ViewNX2 nice to meet you.
There could be some really major programing to update older programs to support newer cameras and that cost could be more than Adobe wants to pay.
If you want to continue to use the older Adobe products, you can use the updated Nikon View NX2 (a free product) to open the NEF and apply the in camera settings and the use the Nikon View NX2 "Open with..." to transfer the image to your Adobe product. You can do the same process with Nikon Capture NX2 but you could edit the NEF before transferting the image. Or you can get the free DNG Converter to convert the NEF files to a DNG file. The DNG Converter will not support the newer cameras until the ACR that supports the camera is released.
Adobe has moved fairly fast for this camera when compared to previous releases.
This is also a way for Adobe to get users upgrade their Adobe products.
