    Excellent improvements, especially the perspective control which is the main reason I ever use PS anymore.

    I wish they'd do something about their poor saturation though.

    Can you Elaborate Jan .. I shoot RAW anyways ?
    I still use PS for layers However LR has become VERY powerfull ... the adjustment brush makes local area control a breeze

    Looks like they are going after Nik's control points tool here.

    I have to hand it to Adobe, they find ways to push PS tools down to LR... but still somehow I still need PS!

    I think I'm going to like the feature that puts copies on your local machine. I normally use my Macbook Air connected to a thunderbolt disk, so this may make editing on the go less painful.

    I wasn't too excited about the rest, but the radial tool looks like it might be useful, or at least a shortcut when I normally use the pen. Unfortunately it doesn't mask on color so it's not really a replacement for what Nik's control points.

    If you mean the dull images by default in RAW I think they addressed this one of the luminous landscape videos on LR4, and maybe Jeff Schewe's book, The Digital Negative. Some JPG shooters turn contrast and saturation down all the way to reduce the chance of blown highlights etc, right? What they said is that basically Adobe found the same thing to be true in RAW. By not pushing contrast and saturation for a punchy image by default you actually get better data and a little more leeway to push and pull the image. Seems like there might be truth in that. If you want a punchy image by default than the right way to do it is to apply a preset on import that increases contrast/saturation. That's what I've done and it is working great for me.
