I would point out, for those of you who want Lightroom on the go, that you can already have it. Not only that, you can have the full Lightroom. Just get a Windows 8 Pro tablet (not Windows 8 RT, you need the full Windows .Exactly. You can take advantage of the "two installation" allowance in the Lightroom license and install it both on your main PC and the tablet, without having to buy a second license ($99 a year for a more limited Lightroom? Crazy price).
I've been using it on a Surface 2 Pro (the 8GB version) and it works pretty well (sure, an 11" screen may be a little to small, but the iPad is not larger, and has no digitizer). Moreover the display can be calibrated as well using a standard calibration tool.
It has a full USB port so you can tether the camera and use it also with EOS Utility for live view and remote shooting without the need of special cables and/or hacks and 3rd party apps. Being an USB 3.0 port is also very quick to import pictures in Lightroom using a card reader.
You two are talking way too much sense for this thread stop it now
