Peter 13: Adobe should offer a "lighter" version of LR. Many people do not want, and actually find it annoying and resource consuming to have a RAW converter with cataloging functions. I would pay a premium to free my computer of all those modules. Let us have a RAW converter/editor without even the need to "import" the files and without all those gimmicks, and offer a bloated version of LR for those who want it. Such a lean product is going the photoshop way, sad.

What you describe is RawShooter, the software that Adobe bought out and killed just before they released Lightroom 1.

Nikonworks: I read Thom Hogan's characterization of Fuji's move into a mirrorless niche:
" Minor bet made (by Fuji) by putting interchangeable primes on an updated X100 frame (upcoming X-Pro1)."

This suggests that we should not 'bet' (buy) the new Fuji X system until they raise their 'bet' perhaps by getting their zoom lenes to market.

Why invest in a new system that was not that much of an investment for Fuji to enter in the first place?

Can't wait until a production review.

Who cares about zooms? The whole point of these seems to be to bring modern cameras back down to the size and weight of the old film cameras, and primes are better suited to that purpose anyway. Sure, I own zooms, but I own more primes, and I wouldn't let a lack of zooms control my lens mount buying decision.

I could almost see myself selling my dSLR gear for the X-Pro1. Motorsports photography is the only reason I don't, but I definitely see myself buying into this system when the body price comes down a bit.

Doesn't work with Windows XP. Big ol' thumbs down from me.
