I post process in NX and any thing else gets done in CS2 like printing.
Righto - have just come back for a bit of a wander around Little Venice in Maida Vale with my girlfriend. Light was really bad so you'll have to forgive the photos but these are the first... I have a great deal to learn about this camera especially when shooting in low light.
I was surprised to see that the 18-70mm lens has a reasonable macro ability.

My girlfriends finger - I know the sky is really blown out but it was quite glarey and I have to spend a little ping on a decent UV or circular polarising filter.
Thanks guys, I appreciate the comments. Yeah I'm pretty stoked with it. I'm really hanging out for some decent subject matter and a nice sunny day. Have ordered a UV and circular polarizing filter (Hoya) for it as well. I pretty much never took the CPF off my old camera.
The clarity and lack of noise in a DSLR really blows me away. I suspect I am going to get a great deal of joy out of this camera.
No I'm still waiting for a Hoya CPL filter to arrive from Hong Kong. I think it was a result of the camera metering off the white wall so it darkend the sky by default. Quite a nice blue after all that I think.
