The LR situation hasn't changed. It'll still be updated as before.

"Lightroom is not a replacement for PS. The rudimentary cloning tools and airbrushing tools in LR make PS necessary. Adobe understands this."

Elements has the same cloning tools as PS. So buy Elements.

TomGordon: Goodbye Adobe, You just got too greedy for a happy photo enthusiast. This was the little push I needed to leave your product line :-)

No, you do not. Lightroom is entirely stand-alone.

Kali108: Capture One Pro 7...here I come.

Just so you know, this doesn't apply to Lightroom.

Just get Lightroom and Elements. It's more than needed for photographers, and it's cheap and perpetual!

Paphios: I've been considering looking at alternative RAW converters other than Adobe's. Now that it will be a necessity the question seems to be which ones to try. Meanwhile I will just use CS6 until Adobe comes to its senses or a solid alternative appears.

That's correct - Lightroom will still have the perpetual license.

Lee Jay: Still waiting to see my first good street photography image.

"There are some of Trent Parke's images that I do really enjoy:"

These pictures are horrendous. I'd delete them in-camera.

And, no, I've never seen an HCB street shot that was any good. He has a couple of non-street shots that are okay.

Is there something about "street photography" that requires everything to be out-of-focus, motion blurred, black-and-white, clipped or crushed, tilted, and/or badly framed?

Revimaru: This IS a game changer. Extremely good news for people like me who have hard time justifying the cost of replacing their crop body with a FF just to get better low light performance

I have a crop sensor camera Canon 40D and my main problem is the lack of choices for a fast wide-normal zoom lens for my needs in astrophotography and shooting band gigs in small bars. Right now I am almost done saving up for Canon 6D body and a 24-70 2.8. Well my plan changed with this announcement. I'll probably be getting a 7D which offers BETTER features than the 6D and wait for this lens.

I mean really look at this:
6D + 24-70mm 2.8 = ~$3700
7D + 18-35mm 2.8 = ~$2800

THAT'S $900 WORTH OF BEER FELLAS!!!!

And oh, you could get camera accessories instead too :)

24-70 is vastly superior in range to 29-57. I'd need at least one wider f/1.8 zoom on the 7D to make up for it.

Without 24mm-equivalent, a normal zoom is a non-starter for me. 15mm or bust!

digitant: I am still using LR3 on a Mac (2012 MBA/13/8/512). Trying out LR5b I notice two things:

* the size of the app: it has grown from 110MB to 1.1GB !
* it still is no true full screen app on Mac OS X 10.8, despite what Adobe says.

Surely these are not show stoppers, but they matter to me.

The size is mostly for templates and profiles. The basic application isn't anywhere near that large.

gl2k: Absolutely no reason to upgrade from 4 to 5. Distortion control is nice but not enough.

Just the aspect ratio overlay, the crop while maintaining center (those will save me hours and hours) and the spot healing would be enough for me. Add in radial gradients and all the little stuff, and this one is a much bigger upgrade for me than LR3 -> LR4 was.

In reply to:

qianp2k: Hope it can handle Canon CR2 files better in reducing banding in lifting shadows. Canon DPP hands in this area better than LR4 but DPP is very limited.

DPP doesn't handle it at all, it just cranks up the noise reduction by default. You can do the same in LR if you want, but it's on Canon to start making better sensors.

JavaJones: FFS Adobe, what a paltry update. I really hope this is not the complete feature list of the final.

That being said, I do appreciate having early beta access for free, so thanks for that! Just please add face recognition, for god's sake.

"FFS Adobe, what a paltry update."

7 pages of new features?

socalcarlos: What I really want to see in Lightroom is a liquify filter, a kind of Alien skin bokeh or on one focal point filter, off center multiple vigneting and a real photoshop like spot healing tool.
This 5 version of Lightroom is supposed to have the off center multiple vigneting and a better healing tool, there's still 3 more tools to make it perfect.

Liquify? Yuck. Alien skin? Yuck. I don't know what focal point is.

Off-center vignetting is in LR 5. The spot healing tool is as well.

bills_pix: I wonder if it will be subscription only. Adobe is not making near enough money off it at $99 to keep them happy. Prepare for the worst with Adobe.

You have in the past. The LR4 upgrade would work on LR 1 through 3.
