I just purchased the ebook "Lightroom 4 Unmasked" from your link. It appears very impressive, in that it is visually excellent and written in intelligent cliche-free English, and is thus way better than the usual guidebook. Thanks for the link..

Still experimenting with Lightroom 4 - but it is an amazingly easy process, and i've hardly looked at the manual yet. It's a bit like Aperture with the addition of some of the nice bits from Nik plug- ins, and a bit of Picasa one click correction thrown in for good measure. And the matched lens correction is terrific. I have corrections for all but my very oldest lenses and they don't get used so much.

Camera calibration is terrific and allows post shoot selection of something closely approximating to Nikon shooting modes at least with my D300 - one slight flaw is that the D600 is still in Beta mode, with just one pre shoot, which at least makes selection fairly straightforward!

I really cannot see why I should ever shoot JPEGs again. It's a good discipline shooting RAW as you chuck away the rubbish to conserve disc space, and I shoot plenty of that

They really ought to include LR4 in the box along with the camera.

I'm sorry to leave Aperture - but it's just not there for what matters to me and it is very temperamental ever since I went to Mountain Lion. Apple have other priorities selling millions of phones at huge margins.

I shan't miss the database Apple though - I know it is a voluntary option but I found myself compelled to use it and I look seeing where all my photographs are! That said I suspect the one area that Aperture was ahead was Projects and Folders but they always totally confused me.
