I think if I were going traveling, I would take the 15, 21, 28 (assuming I like it as much as you guys), and a 50 for portraits. This of course translates to 23, 32, 42, 75. Which isn't a bad...

How to make photoshop use the Epson RAW plugin?

Maybe I'm missing something simple. But Photoshop CS always wants to use it's own RAW plugin. Is there a way to make it use the Epson one? Or at least a way to specifically choose to use the Epson...
