    This is great, but we (people with a retina MB) desperately want retina support. So sad to see our sharp pictures on a sharp display blurry.

      No Retina support????? :(((((

    Love LR4, great stuff. I see that tethering with the D800 on Windows should work with 4.2, what about on Mac? This is the one feature I am waiting for.

    And still no support for the sigma sd1 Merrill. Will we be able to import the .x3f raw file? I hope so.

    Yep, really want support for the SD1 Merrill and DP Merills – they will sell in volume, and users will want an alternative to Sigma’s sofware which is a pure raw processor with minimal catalogue or editing functions.

    D600 would be handy in the next RC…

    I hoped to see Retina support this fall. Leaves are falling, Oktoberfest is in full swing, and LR still looks fuzzy on a Retina MB or becomes hard to use when forcing it into full resolution.

    So, when do we get 4.3 with Retina support? Yes, not everybody has a Retina MB. However, every single Retina MB user I know is a photographer, and as such an existing or potential user of Lightroom.
