DaveBowman: @Davidwa - so, half the price of the previous version and you still find something to moan about. Some people really are NEVER happy.
I originally stated that the price reduction was good news and was only making a general comment about download versions being the same price as a boxed version.
Gionni Dorelli: can we upgrade from version 2?
Adobe UK charge £86.57 for LR4 and £49.24 for LR4 upgrade exclusive of VAT. The same price for boxed version and download version. Surely the download version should be cheaper.
The reduced pricing is good news however their pricing policy is a mystery to me. Just checked Adobe's U.K. Web site and if I want to purchase Lighroom 4 Upgrade the price is 60.59 Pounds if I choose to download the software. However the price is 59.09 Pounds if I want Adobe to ship the software to me in a boxed version. Surely if I choose to download I'm saving CD manufacturing, packaging, people handling and postage costs so the download version should be much cheaper.
PHOTOJOE55: A case of too little, too late? more than that, it's a copycat, and a very bad one at that. 2 weeks ago members were debating sensor size, and they argued with me to no end.. Well I hope they're happy. As for the members, I said, they are not photographers, they are NIKONERS, that's all they cared about. And For NIKON to even admit that they spent 4 years on this. It appears they don't even know what direction they are going. With this attempt at a small body, large lens, oblong, unbalanced (the camera too, not just NIKON) with Mark Ellwood doing their Podcasts (you have to hear it to believe it) I am so sorry I switched in 85 because now with 10k in glass and another 5-6k on accessories what do I do? Nikon will get what it deserves. They've made custiomers into enemies, who were expecting a more refined full frame. Just look at the competition. Anyone who buys a coolpix with exchangeable lenses gets what they deserved. This is disgraceful, completely DISAPPOINTING!!! ...Joe Prete
I agree with you 100% that this is a disappointing camera for serious photographers, but why would you want to sell all your Nikon gear just because they bring out one camera you do not like.
