Expression Media EM2:

Pros:Good adherence to IPTC/XML Professional Standards out of the box. Good flexibility and utility. Reads virtually any kind of media file. Hierarchical keywords have been added, but lack some of the functionality of regular keywords.

Cost is now $199 with a $99 upgrade from virtually any commercial photographic application. It's also offered free to students.

Cons:No separate/printable manual for EM2. Catalog still has a 1.6 gb size limit forcing workarounds. New EM forum hosted by MS is no where near as active as the old iView forums, but there is a product evangelist who monitors the forum that is extremely helpful.
