Nikon have just launched the long awaited D3S professional FX camera. As the D3, it is equipped with Nikon's 12.1 effective Mp. CMOS sensor, but with an extended standard ISO range of 12.800 and an ISO-max of 102.400.
Comparing all the mayor contenders in the RAW conversion field leaves us with only one conclusion: there is no real "champion". Some images are better off with program x, while others with program y. However, and in spite of its shortcomings and elevated price, the Bridge/Photoshop/ACR/DNG Converter combo is the more obvious choice for those who routinely convert large amounts of RAW images.
Damn Adobe for their Suite and activation schemes. They have definitely overtaken MS as the dark empire...
Maybe the best Nikon ever built? Some will surely disagree, but with over 14.000 takes on it, and considering its price, I think yes! Updated: 29-04-09.
