This isn't a question but I wanted to note that Lightroom 2.0 is now available as a finished version. Adobe has also made available camera-specific profiles that emulate the basic picture control modes of Nikon DSLRs. The profiles are beta but I checked them out and they seem to work nicely. They didn't work on LR2 beta so I had to upgrade to 2.0. The final result is not quite identical to conversions made with Capture but they're really close. Sharpening is not exactly the same, but if you adjust it to be roughly equal, the noise level, highlight behaviour, and colors are really close to what Capture produces at the various picture control defaults - with subtle differences. I am extremely pleased with this new development as I've been frustrated with trying to get capture-like skin tones and high ISO image quality (with D3 files) from previous versions of Lightroom without success. Especially the recovery of highlights in high ISO D3 images was a problem. The profiles also work with PS CS3 after you download ACR 4.5. I am very glad about the timing of this release. I have always liked LR because of its speed, user interface and stability. Now it seems the image quality is also up there.
