    I love the "smarter smart objects" one They're doing a 30% discount on LR2 with CS4 too if anyone hadn't seen.

    Sounds like some really nice features. Some of them maybe useful as well

    I've heard it is slower - which is to be expected due to new features. I'm guessing a much bigger memory footprint as well.

    No such thing as a free lunch.

    CS4 suite comparison..

    What surprises me is that Lightroom is not part of Master Collection or Production Premium.

    Thanks Lani,
    I have had a chance to test out the photoshop CS4 (due to my better half now being a full time student at TAFE) over recent weeks in between a busy work schedule....
    the enhanced RAW processing features now available in CS4 are in my opinion a great improvement over the old Cs2 (last version I had some limited access to). The fact that it has the ability to carry out localised enhancements to the exposure of a RAW image is an improvement and pleasing to note.
