As many of you know, the D700 RAW files aren’t recognized by our favorite photo manager and editor, Aperture. I found this article on how to convert your D700 NEF files into an application agnostic DNG file using the Adobe DNG converter. You can then bring those files into Aperture and do your photo editing thing. It’s a simple work around, but come on, Apple! Can you update Aperture so we can all just use our D700 files directly with your product without having to go through Adobe?
With Lightroom being your obvious competitor, why would you let Adobe beat you to the RAW-recognizing gate by over a month? Why would you force us to use Adobe products to convert our files into usable images? Your market of customers buy new cameras and expect them to work immediately.
Please update soon.
