    Capture NX and CS2, thats what i use for processing NEF's from my D80.

    Mainly process in NX and then if i need to print, save as a tif and print from CS2

    I use Lightroom for general volume PP and drop into PS CS2 for sharpening and more in depth editing.

    Quite liking LR as an organisation tool and workflow optimiser. Needs some tweaks but could be the future for me.

    Phase One as it came for free (free activation code - says expiry on 31 Mar but worked fine two days ago when I installed) in the Sandisk SD Extreme III 2GB package I received from Play the other day. ;)
    Can't comment on how it works - have yet to use/try it out.

    Got to be Capture NX.

    It's SLOOOW, but incredibly useful. The fact that you can tweak all the in-camera settings in NX at your leisure is superb (I use a D200 as well). I use it in conjuction with Paint Shop Pro, and these days I do about 90% of PP in NX.

    It's worth getting for the tight integration with the D200 and control point system alone (control points are a PPers dream!)

    And if you get Capture Nx, then get a copy of Jason Odell's Capture NX guide. Makes life a lot easier.
