Ok, I admit I'm seriously thinking of switching back to Aperture. Last summer, I switched after agonizing over my choice. I saw two issues, apple's lack of attention to apeture/RAW and aperture's substandard editing capabilities. Now that A3 is out, the first issue has not really been allayed - only time will tell but the second was completely. So I'm 80 - 90% sure I'm switching. One of the things I missed in Aperture was apple's integration to other products. I can easily share my images to any apple product and even use rapidweaver. With LR, I need to resize, and export the pngs and then import them into the given application or device (iphone). What I will miss is LRs grid view that includes such items as file name, date, rating image size or what other metric I choose. While A3's UI is clean, neat and consistent I will miss the lack of data being presented in the grid view. Any other people contemplating movnig over to A3?
