That's cutting it a bit fine if you ask me - the beta runs out at the end of Feb!! I heard it was due at the begining of next week... but rumours are normally wrong.
As for $306 that seems ok but I will not be impressed if they just convert that same number into other foreign currency.
I will NOT be paying £300 for this software! So I make this plea to Adobe...please please please don't rip off people outside of the US with inflated prices i.e. The US version of CS2 is about $599 whilst the UK version is £500 (about $950). UK taxes do not double the price so this is just plain wrong....
Sorry for the rant folks...I'm just concerned that Lightroom will end up being out of my budget just because I don't live in the US!
I suppose I could order it from B&H when it appears - even paying import tax I probaly will make a huge saving.
