I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I figured that it fit best here...

I am asking about the latest versions of course...

Anyone have insight/experience?

Thanks!

With the first 4 versions, I remember seeing it on sale at Amazon or BH/Adorama every once in a while for maybe half of MSRP. LR5 seems to not go on sale as often, but I do see it bundled with products all the time. For example, I got my version of Lightroom bundled with a refurbished Nikon J1 for $150, effectively making the software free.

Thanks... I don't think I have seen it "on sale" yet... Just wondering what things have been like historically...

Thanks...

Per CPW, in the last 12 months, LR has been pretty consistent with it's price with limited offerings... I may wait for 6...

If you are careful, you can pick up a new copy one bay for cheap. People get copies with printers and then sell the Lightroom because thay don't need it. That's where I got mine, Paid 60.00 bucks I think. Just watch for feedback on the seller, I've never gone wrong on Ebay. Good luck, Lightroom is the way to go!

Yes, the price of LR5 standalone has been stable, but over the holidays some stores (namely BuyDig/Beach) were offering "bundles" of a printer + LR5 for about $60, or a 5TB hdd + LR5 for about $130. Both were excellent deals.

I regularly see LR5 bundled with a Canon printer for $70 at Buydig. Usually happens at least every 3 months. I got mine there last summer.
