If you acquired your copy with the purchase of a D3 and D300 dSLR, you qualify for the discounted upgrade edition.
Nikon has issued a statement clarifying its policy regarding free upgrades for some users who purchased Capture NX in the month before Capture NX version 2 launched.
Capture NX Version 2 was announced on June 3rd, 2008, and a 60 day trial is available for download at http://www.capturenx.com/.
Tex of Nikon's Statement:
Retail customers who purchase Capture NX Version 1 from a Nikon Inc. authorized reseller, (Nikon product number 25338) from May 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008 will be entitled to receive a FREE Capture NX 2 Upgrade directly from Nikon. Customers simply need to call Nikon at 800-Nikon-UX with their product key and provide a copy of their proof of purchase to receive a Capture NX 2 key code free of charge.
Customers who received a copy of Capture NX with their D3 or D300 are not eligible for the no-charge upgrade but still qualify for the discounted upgrade edition at an MSRP of $109.95.
