Opening Nikon NEF files

Is Magick.NET able to open and process Nikon's .NEF format, which as I understand it is essentially TIFF-based?

I run a routine opening images in a folder that are in different formats and keep getting something like "Attempt to reading image directory threw exception: unable to open image 'C:/Users/User/AppData/Local/Temp/magick-7356NQT3k7ny9Kqd.ppm': No such file or directory @ error/blob.c/OpenBlob/2695". The same routine processes and shows JPG files just fine.

In case this is relevant, the call to open the image is simple:
                curImage = new MagickImage(filePath);
Appreciate your help.

You will need dcraw for that. You can find the instructions for getting and using it here: https://magick.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Read%20raw%20image%20from%20camera
