I use nikon D810 and I shoot in small NEF format. I experience  an issue with Lightroom and ACR: after importing small NEF files shadows are clipped and cannot be recovered. Everything is fine with the camera and files. I opened them with Nikon's software and shadows were not clipped. I use most current Lightroom CC and Photoshop versions on PC. Probably LR and ACR must be using an incorrect algorithm for calculating the Black point.
