Default JPEG 2000 format

I'd heard of JPEG 2000 and that it uses the file extension JP2. I think that there are claims that it produces smaller files with better detail.

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Irfanview, and discovered that so long as you have downloaded and installed a needed plug-in that comes in a zip file. Irfanview will save and read files in JPEG 2000 format.

My other programs, on the other hand (ACDSee and Adobe Photoshop L.E.) can't read JP2 files.

Has anybody any experience of this new JPEG2000 format? Is it really so much better than JPEG? Is it likely to supplant JPEG? If it really is all that much better, are camera manufactuirers likely to adopt it?
