  1. I have verified the Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 2.3 does resolve the issues with Nikon D40 Raw files introduced with the 2.2 update. I suspect it also resolves similar issues with the other Nikon models also… snap on !

  2. I carry a Nikon D300, import RAW files on Aperture and have the previous update and haven’t noticed any issues so far. I wasn’t planning on updating this, but now, reading money talks, I think I will. Meanwhile, if one wishes to pass on an update, is there a way to not have that update show up when the Software update is run the next time? I know I can just un-check them, but when you skip a bunch they tend to just pile up and is annoying. I just don’t want to load unnecessary updates (for my needs) bloating up my OS à la windows.

    OT: Sometimes, I so wish I stayed with Canon and not switched camps.
