Well I just purchased it and I have to say it changed really changed PP multiple images for me so yes. I still use PS when I just have a few to work on and they are not that critical.

It is taking me a bit to get used to. Still on the fence with it. Many people are raving about the highlight and shadow adjustments. I have to tell you, I kind of miss the brightness slider. I am used to pushing the histogram to the right and then simply pulling the brightness back a bit to tame it in post. I feel as if I am struggling with color correction as well. More than likely a user error. I must confess that I bought LR4 to go along with the 5D3 though. The fact that I am learning both of these at the same time may be goofing me up.

I like the new upgrade alot. I'm learning to watch the clarity as it affects the pic a lot more than LR3 or LR2. The contrast is also a little confusing to me but I'm getting there. All in all I really like LR4.

I don't know why but I liked the clarity better in LR3???

I've had Lightroom running 24/7 since I installed it on 4/19. I haven't installed 4.1 yet.

Well, I also have a ton of other stuff running, some photo-related (Bridge/PS and DPP) and many browser pages open using two browsers at any given time.

So, yes, things do slow down with LR with that type of environment. They did as well with LR3, I'm just not sure if LR4 slows down "more" or not! But today, LR4 was down to a creeping crawl. I shut things down and rebooted, started LR, and it's much happier now:)!

I should add that it's not just LR that slows down under those conditions, everything does!

I had Lightroom 4 installed on my 4 year old PC and found it VERY slow compared to Lightroom 3. I just bought a new Macbook Pro and Lightroom 4 simply rocks on it. No slowness or lag whatsoever.

I haven’t found any particular lag yet on my late 2011 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 MacBook Pro with 8Gb RAM. I haven’t had to close my other usual running applications.

Same machine, same experience. It cranks the fans, but handles the work fine.

Lightroom 4 is my first experience with any version and I do like it quite a bit. I love the speed of which editing can be done and still yield excellent results.

I was initially annoyed at the "lag" between switching images. Then I found what is probably known to most, you can render previews so that when switching images there is no lag.

For anyone interested go to Library->Previews->Render 1:1 Previews.

I was in a class last night and the instructor mentioned the new RC-2 for LR4 helps considerably with the speed at which the sliders, etc... work in LR4. I have downloaded RC-1, so I guess I am going to try RC-2.
I also am adjusting to LR4, but that seems to be the way of software every year or two these days.
I'd say it is keeping me on my toes, but I have been on my toes for the last 3 years...hehehe


just a few of my thoughts...

Please post back (or pm me) and let me know how the RC 2 goes. Is the general concensus that you should install it if you are using RC 1?
