Lightroom now has support for Nikon D7100. Does anybody have any suggestions when Aperture will provid support?

    As is always said when this question is asked, we;re all just users here and have no inside knowledge of what Apple is up to.


    NIkon cameras seem to be included relatively quickly so if the past is any indication it could be in the next cycle but when that will be no one here can say.

    For Canon and Nikon cameras, Aperture's support tends to be about as fast as Lightrooms.  Sometimes Aperture gets support first, and other times it's Lightroom, but it's typically close.

    There has always been, and likely always will be a bit of leap frog, one upsmanship with the timetables for competing developers when adding RAW support for new cameras.  None of the developers who offer solutions for RAW processing have the market cornered in this respect.


    While I too have concerns ... it should be pointed out that the view across the fence is not as attractive as one might think.


    On Oct. 23, 2012, Apple added RAW support and tether support for the Nikon D600 ... while Lightroom did add RAW support for the D600 about the same time, Adobe has yet to offer tether support for the D600.  In fact, Lightroom only supports a small select few cameras for tethering.


    Of course this may not be of interest for Aperture users who do not rely upon the tethering feature ... I simply point out this situation in order to illustrate that Lightroom is not a panacea of perfection ... and don't get me started on how horrid the Lightroom Slideshow and Book modules are compared to what Aperture offers.


    Likely, Apple will offer an update sooner rather than later.
