I've been testing this against LR3 for the last hour or so.

Preliminary conclusions so far are..

1- That it is more resource hungry than LR3.

2- The map feature is a nice touch and is similar but better than the one in the recent release of ACDseePro4.

3- The develop module improvements are well worth the upgrade alone as there is even less reason to transfer to PS .

As a example this original image.

Had to be transfered from LR3 to PS as two exposures one for the sky and one for the truck and then combined as it was impossible to keep the detail in shadow and highlight in LR3 for the look I wanted.

Combined images in PS from LR3.

Now using LR4 without the need for further processing in a outside editor.
