I've just switched from using Adobe Camera Raw (bundled with PS) to Lightroom.

Both are very good, though I think I'll be sticking with Lightroom from now on - runs a little more smoothly, handles duplicates & versions better, and nice interface.

Runs to a couple of hundred dollars - http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/

If you already have photoshop, then you have Camera Raw, which isn't bad at all - I was using it happily until Lightroom came along.

might also be worth hunting down a copy of Raw Shooter (Premium or, um, Express)... the premium version was bought out by adobe and used in part as the kernel for lightroom - apparently fast and well like by its users... I believe there are copies to be found somewhere on the www, but sorry, I have no links

I got Capture One LE by Phase One free with a 2GB Sandisk Extreme CF card from amazon. It's worth $99 on it's own and seems to be pretty good and does batch processing easily.

I'm still eagerly awaiting Lightroom though :D

Elements has a RAW processor that does a good job and it's only about £65, also there is one bundled with Alpha 100.
