This is really a workflow question. Right now I enjoy Lightroom as a single do everything solution. I follow the book ...import to disk and backup,import to lightroom,edit and make selections,develop and process the best (maybe 10%) and output to web based collections or print on Epson R2400. I know not much imagination here but I have a well managed library of 20K images and I can always go back and redo the processing( I get smarter a little at a time). But I know I should be using other raw processors to get optimum results..even straight CS3 beats my workflow and I would like to use C1 and CaptureNX(for my D3 files). So where does it best fit...I would think as early as possible and before I import to Lightroom. Does that make sense?
