fantastic and sad at the same time. We're praising this piece of art while comparing photography gear which this child will never know anything about.

Who cares? really.
companies come and go, so do people and money.

waxwaine: Still not better than Pentax K-r(1 1/2 years old)

People should be aware that they are better alternatives to this product such as the Pentax K r. Having a 24 MP behemoth should not be a consideration factor these days.

mmcfine: Poor consumers who will buy this or any mega pixel camera without considering the post production or loading and editing these huge files.

exactly my point ARTASHES !
TOMPABES2: yes nowadays computers have enough power but the average consumer doesn't buy those computer, most of my non-pro friends who have mega pixel cameras use Picasa, Windows on some cheap crap Dell laptop.

Most average consumers buy 24 MP cameras and never read the instructions, have no basic idea of photography or intentions to learn.
Most average consumers use these mega pixel DSLR as a P&P.

More average consumer DLSR sales = reduced prices on hi-end stuff for us...-)

mmcfine: I agree with the comments. there is really no difference today in this price point and the sample photos are irrelevant. It's more about the lens and the photographer. The X-Pro seems like the logical move.

just looked at some photos. amazing. I use Lightroom 3 for post and seems I will have to deep farther on how to get that great balance of saturation and contrast.
Cheers from down under.

mmcfine: I return LR4 and got my money back. LR3 is great and works well on my 08 MBP. LR4 has (may it's fixed) many import issues, files missing, some files can not be previewed on import, I could not import Jpegs if they where shot together as Jpeg+Raw, video playback sluggish and feature limiting and a few other annoying bugs.
And Adobe want's me to provide feedback??? what they are not making enough money to employ testers? I have given Adobe feedback for 15 years and the only think they where happy to accept is my upgrade money. Sorry Adobe, no more.

I said "licenses"... true, LR is only $79 but I am talking about CS licenses in an agency. Each upgrade is a big hole in the budget. Times have moved and even Adobe acknowledged it. Subscription based SAAS is the way to go including Apps.
Don't get me wrong. I love LR. I think it's one the best products Adobe came out with in years, but Adobe as a public company can't stop adding ridicules features and software combinations (See Photoshop CS6). We as consumers have the option to say no.

well, if you're happy paying premium for minor updates then go for it. With Apps coming from every corner of the planet and a huge open source community, shelling thousands of dollars a year on licenses just to keep share holders happy is the way of the past.
Enjoy LR4

On Lightroom 4 Review article (469 comments in total)

Even though not really an upgrade I got LR4 for it's video archiving. this alone is a great way to archive and manage all the digital assets. You can do some simple trimming and color corrections to video clips but LR is not for that and hope Adobe won't make LR a mammoth as they so often do with other products. All in all, it runs the same as all other LR versions. I am running LR4 on a mid 08 MBP and it's OK.
If you need LR for it's core capabilities then you can skip this version.

For desktop publishing professionals there is no substitute to PS but for the rest like TV and web industry the alternatives are getting better. As long as you don't need CMYK support there is really no need for a CS suite.

I am not going to upgrade to a full CS suite anymore it simply doesn't make sense.

It's simple.
Adobe does not have a competition and therefor can do whatever they want!
