Unlike Photoshop, image editing in Lightroom is completely nondestructive. Image adjustments and touch-ups are visible on-screen, but the underlying image data remains unchanged and can always be reverted back to its original state. Lightroom accomplishes this by storing all the image metadata, history, and more in the applicable Lightroom catalog. When you open an image later, you can make more adjustments, change the cropping, and rework touch-ups, or you can simply reset the image to its original state. Snapshots of image variations can be taken along the way, and Lightroom will store those variations for the next time you work with that image.

Being miffed at Adobe, or frustrated while learning Lightroom, or missing a few camera features, may not be good enough reasons in the long run. I use CNX2 regularly by the way, and think 95% of the time Lightroom does a better job with those NEF files. Back when Lr was at version 2 (and the Nikon camera profiles for Lightroom were young), I more often favored the NX2 rendering, but now - just the opposite.

Now I mostly use Nx2 for cooked editing (as external editor after raw conversion in Lr) because of the U-points. If Adobe invented a better auto-masking technology, or Nik allowed multiple adjustments to be tied to U-point selections in their Photoshop plugins, I'd ditch Nx2 altogether, but alas: that is not the case... Anyway, if you want to consider a split workflow (some Lr, some Nx2), and you can get around the mental block to using lr-plugins, consider NxTooey.
