quicko58: WHY ARE YOU RIPPING OFF AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS ADOBE?
Lightroom v4 has been offered at US $79 for an upgrade $149 full product.At today's exchange rate that would be just under A$75 (upgrade) or A$141 (Full). The UK store would be even better for us on today's rates at A$73 (upgrade) or A$129 (Full).
Instead these are the prices on the Adobe Store here in Australia
Full Product (Boxed) $219.09 + GST = $241.00Full Product (Download) $187.00 ex GSTUpgrade (Boxed) $111.25 + GST = $122.38Upgrade (Download) $98.75 ex GST
I have been a loyal Lightroom user since Version 1 and have also paid for upgrades for both v2 & v3. I wouldn't expect that Adobe would offer it at today's exchange rate but you are not even close. I will be in no hurry to upgrade with the unfair pricing policy that Adobe Australia seem to have in place.
after reading your post I tried other adobe sites.in france, there is a promotion (free shipping).then the download version is more expensive than the boxed (shipped) one!!!
