I can't live without "Control Points" coming from the older CNX-2 version.  NIK Viveza2 is okay as a sub and it's Control Points may be even small than CNX-2 too.  CNX-D seems to suffer a lot of editing stuff in the older version.  They are not points set on the RGB curves as mentioned above either as seen in PS.

However, those control point things are GREAT!  I must have used a dozen in yesterday's edit: Saturation, Contrast, Brightness, Warmth, and Color all in a 'sized' spot, and a dozen or more too.  Adobe can't even come close, unless going into the NIK Viveza 2 plug-in.

For those that wish to open D810 NEF files in Capture NX2 to take advantage of the controls, refer here. You will require the penultimate version (2.4.6) of Capture NX2, which can be downloaded here.

[Re Simon Garrett's: A plausible workflow is to use NXD to tweak the camera control settings...I shall keep NX-D loaded so I can use it occasionally for a "reference Nikon raw conversion".]

That's the workflow I've begun using when in doubt about LR's interpretation.

My biggest disappointment with it is that it won't Save As DNG.
