It's quite easy. Launch LR5, under FILE go to "Open Catalog" (also Shift-Command-O on a Mac), select the catalog you want to open. At this point, LR5 will ask if you want to update the catalog. Click yes and go get a pizza and a beer. I have 65,000 images in my catalog and it took quite a while to update the catalog. All my collections, smart collections, presets, etc were intact. Also leaves your original catalog untouched making it easy to step back to LR4 if you choose to.

 
Does anyone know the easiest way to move all my LR4 photos/collections into LR5? I didn't get a dialogue when I first launched it.

I have the Shorty Forty and use it to fill the gap between my 24mm f1.4L and 50mm f1.2L. I like it a lot and it works perfectly for what I want. For $200? It's a no brainer. Almost every photographer (especially those of us on full frame bodies) can use this lens. If you use primes, it sits in a very nice spot between 24-28mm lenses and the 50s. (It might not be as attractive for peeps who have a 35). If you use zooms, it's a much smaller, lighter lens for carrying around. And then we get back to the $200 part of the equation. It is, hands down, the best $200 lens on the market.

From a magazine editor's standpoint, this is pretty blah with uninspiring images. Very little useful information.

Roger, at LensRentals said all that needs to be said in four sentences:

"This is really an amazing lens. Little pancakes are cute and all, but usually aren’t of very good image quality. This one has exceptional image quality and does it at an amazing price. Probably the best bargain of a prime lens that exists, anywhere, for anything."

I'm guessing that that's probably a legal requirement related to Freedom of Information Requests etc. Not like deleting emails. He must carry a lot of CF cards though!

Nice shot and interesting post.
About a couple of months ago I saw a documentary (can't remember if it was Discovery or NatGeo or History channel) about the President's photographer ... apparently the photographer takes photos of the president all day long and he is not permitted to delete even a single photo, even if it is a crappy shot.
