Lightroom 3 is Here!

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3
After spending my fall/winter working with the Adobe Lightroom 3 beta and beta 2, the long awaited release of the final product is finally here.  For those of you who have been using the beta(s), please be aware that they will now expire on June 30th.
I haven't ponied up and made my purchase yet, but you can bet I will before the end of the month.  The associated sticker shock will be made somewhat easier (don't get me wrong, I think it's worth every penny) by my recent gift membership to the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (or NAPP). For the $99 per year subscription fee, you not only receive a subscription to Photoshop User magazine, access to invaluable tutorials on Photoshop and Lightroom, but you also get a 15% discount on most Adobe products, discounts on other plug ins and online retailer purchases, hotels, car rentals... It's more than likely you'll recover your membership fee just in discounts.
If you're still on the fence, take a look at the LR3 Learning Center on the NAPP website for a taste.  No, I'm not receiving a commission.  I just think this is too good a deal to pass up.
