I am a happy user of Lightroom 2. I always shoot RAW with my D300. I have just decided to switch to shooting with Vivid enabled in camera and like the results. I think Scott Kelby recommends this as well. However, I clearly lose the Vivid setting when I convert the RAW using Lightroom, I can see it change as it moves from the preview jpeg to the actual RAW file. I tried NX2 and thought it was not nearly as nice a workflow but want to be able to get the best quality out of my photos. It won't let me do another trial, even thought I've had to reformat my PC about 2 times since trying NX2 last year. Any thoughts on how I can try NX2 again? Also, is NX2 worth the extra hassle beyond using just Lightroom? Finally, if I process through NX2 can the image come out of the program as a NEF or does it export out (and have to be imported into Lightroom) as a TIFF?
