comment What features does a graphics adapter need for best performance in Lightroom?
@dpollitt, speed does not matter if the embedded graphics can not provide the required resolution. And as far as I know it can provide 1920x1080 (full HD) at maximum.

@dpollitt, the "fantastic graphics option" can't run 2560x1600, as far as I know, so it's unusable for my 2560x1600 setup.

@PeterT how can you be safe without knowing? @Jakub, no, sorry, 1GB memory of course. My mistake!! Drivers are most recent, did not help. There might be a bios update for my mainboard, though.

LR at quarter resolution: fast. LR at quarter size: fast. LR at full size: sluggish. CPU is max 50% in all three modes (meaning 2 of 4 cores are at full use?)

Tried the update, there was a new version, but changes in develop mode are still sluggish. I don't want to go back to lower resolution, but this lag sucks for working on pictures :(

#1 check, #2 check - I added my specs above. I'm really puzzled what slows my system. Might try a faster GPU, but which one?

@mattdm, I was pondering to open the question there, but thought Lightroom might be photo-specific, so I ended up here. I'll wait if something arises from here before double-posting.

@Jakub, I found the speed in the development module lacking since I upgraded my display to 2560x1600 no matter if I have 40 or 40000 pictures in the catalog. It's not about the speed to switch from one picture to another, it's about the speed after which Lightroom will update the display with the changes from adjusting development parameters like brightness. (I'll look up the specs later)

@mattdm, I know, but anything which might speed up Lightroom would be great.

comment Loss of detail in high key areas?
It's a security question to keep out bots - The answer probably would be "canon" (in small letters, no caps).

comment Where can I find reviews of and tools for comparing cameras?
Hehe, yeah. According to snapsort the Leica M9 has a "inferior sensor". But it is a fast way to see the data and compare for yourself.

Wow! I'd love to see one of those for in-lens-IS, which is said to be quite different from in-body-IS.

comment Are there practical differences between Canon's IS and Nikon's VR?
I'm trying to avoid VR lenses (I did even before I ran into problems on high shutter speeds): they are bigger, heavier, suck more power from your batterie and are more expensive, and all this for some benefit which usually only applies if you take pictures of not-moving-targets where you'd be better off using a tripod anyways. The only case where I find VR useful is lenses with 200mm and above, where the shutter speed is fast enough to freeze action even when it can't be hand-hold anymore.
