If that's correct, I'd presume that Michael must be happy with ACR and LR for his new a900? I've read various posts in various places claiming that ACR does a poor job on Sony files. now I'm totaly confused because I can't see him using anything but the best.
He will be able to comment on that better, but could it be that your best differs from my best, which differs from Michael's best?
We all have different priorities and usage patterns, don't we?
