Ive been trying to sort out which way I wanted to invest my time learning software. I own CS4 and CNX2 and I've also played around with Lightroom 3 while it was still a beta.

I went out and shot some of the fall foliage a few weeks back and wanted to sort out those that are wall worthy. I fould one lovely shot of some golden leaves in a nice bath of sunlight and shade. I put this picture, side by side, in CNX2 and ACR 5.7. After careful line up of a small section of this photo I was able to switch back and forth with out any shifting of the picture.

Although at a casual glance it wouldn't appear that there was much difference when you paid attention to one spot the difference in clarity was huge. I have it running, rock solid, on a i7 920 machine that I built a while back. Maybe new isn't better?
