That is the question!
I’m about to start my DAM using LR6 and will be using both On1 Perfect Photo Suite and Affinty Photo as my final image editors.
I’ve been reading (too much as usual) about converting my Nikon D700 NEF files to DNG upon import into LR6… but is this really a necessary step? Can I just leave them as NEFs and if I do will that affect how they are dealt with in both On1 PPS and AP?
I understand how DNG clumps the data with the photo itself as opposed to the saddlecar file that accompanies an NEF file, and that DNG is supposed to be the “universal” file format of the future (according to Adobe anyway)… but is there more hype involved with this. I don’t see Nikon going away any time soon, therefore I also don’t see NEF going away either!
