Aperture 2.0 released

This is all over the place. Apple has dropped the price $100 and improved the UI. Curious to see whether pro photographers think it is now better than Lightroom or not. Here’s John Gruber’s succinct summary over on Daring Fireball:

Streamlined (read: “better”) interface, significant performance improvements (read: “Aperture 1 was slow”), and much more. $199, upgrades $99.

My even more succinct summary:

Man, Lightroom sure kicked our ass last time around!

Update: MacWorld has a pretty good overview, though it does quote a little too much from the product manager positioning.
