    This seems like it should work well, but I have tried this once on my PC and it broke Lightroom. Had to do a system restore. Granted this is probably just my specific set-up. I'm sure it works...

    Canon 50mm f/1.8

    After the rebate it should end up at about $1350 for the package. I thought...
