Lightroom, ACR support D700
A number of people have written in to ask when Lightroom and Camera Raw will support the brand-new Nikon D700. Good news: they already do–unofficially–in Lightroom 2.0/Camera Raw 4.5. Unofficial support simply means that you can view and edit D700-generated NEF files normally, but because the camera is so new, Adobe QE folks haven’t tested it to the point that they feel comfortable declaring official support. The DNG Converter can convert D700 NEFs so that they can be used in LR 1.4, Photoshop CS2, and other DNG-enabled tools.
Note: LR2/ACR 4.5 add official support for the Olympus E 420 and E 520.
