I've been using Photoshop since 1990 (part of my day job). Soon after CNX2 came out I established a Photo Mechanic – CNX2 workflow, and that served me well for several years. About two years ago I switch to Lightroom both for the catalog ability and also for the more advanced processing that it offers over CNX2.

It takes an extra thirty seconds to initially dial in an image in Lightroom as compared to CNX2. That's expected, as Lightroom does not read the exact camera settings. But over time I have found this to be a blessing: by treating the RAW file as that, and tweaking all aspects of the data rather than starting from an arbitrary spot (the in-camera settings), I find I get a better result with exposure and especially with white balance — the Lightroom controls are more variable and more powerful.

The local selection controls are very good, too. The Lightroom Brush gives Control Points a good run for the money. Lightroom's image syncing and batching are much faster than CNX2.
