Jacques Cornell: A clear, well-written overview of the major additions to what looks like a good product. Mac users might like to know, though, that almost all of these new features, with the exception of lens profiles, have been available in Aperture 3 for over two years at half the price ($80). The main differences between these two programs now lie in the details and the user interface. Comparing them feature-for-feature, I now find it a wash for my purposes. Love LR's lens corrections, but also love AP's ability to save to two places simultaneously when shooting tethered. The decider for me is the UI. Aperture seems more intuitive, more streamlined, and better designed for high-volume editing (view-rank-select-organize). I'd characterize the difference between LR and AP as between an emphasis on tools vs. on workflow. AP gets me from A to Z with less clicks.

I'm an Aperture user for about 5 years now. I always preferred it, but LR has graduated filters and lens profiles. In Aperture, you need a plugin to do that. I bought all the NIK-plugins, but still: that creates HUGE files to work with. I will test LR4 and might make the switch...
