Subject: Re: Camera Raw support for Nikon D200?

The 60 message string (as of January 1st 2006) is fully informative on predictions of when Adobe's RAW capture program is likely to support the Nikon D200. But one poster said that he thought Nikon Capture was superior anyway and thus it is not worth waiting for Adobe to support the D200. Specifically he wrote:

"Save yourself some headache, spend the $99 and buy Nikon Capture. It will do a much better job at processing NEF files. I have done a number of tests with D1X, D2X, D70 and D2h images and found that the CS2 plugin actually added noise into the images that I processed. I also got much better color with Nikon Capture than I did with theCS2 plugin. The Abobe RAW plugin is designed to work with many different camera brands, it actually over processes many images. I can't speak for the RAW software that Canon uses for thier RAW images, but Nikon Capture is a pretty imressive piece of software."

Does anyone else agree? Disagree? (Other postings said Nikon Capture was slow and difficult to use, but didn't comment on the quality.) As someone about to start with RAW images, and about to buy a D200, I'm curious whether it makes sense to learn Adobe or Nikon. Comments welcome. Thanks in advance.
