Lightroom 4 or CS6 Upgrade

I shoot in RAW mode (Canon 5D2 and 7D). CS5 supports all my cameras and using Bridge and ACR with associated workflows is working well. I seldom actually process in Photoshop. Just final sizing or specialty touch up.

The new ACR engine looks like something that would be valuable. I could upgrade to CS6 for $200 and be there.

One question is whether adding LR 4 instead of a CS6 upgrade would be worth considering. It would have the latest ACR engine as I understand it. It also has some video and other capabilities that I think would be useful. LR 4 is less costly that CS6 upgrade and future LR upgrades would be less costly.

I am trying to determine what impacts to my workflows would be. Can still work in Bridge or would LR suffice on its own? Those kinds of questions.

Any comments or thoughts would be appreciated.

Thank you
