A powerhouse - get it!
Excellent, robust, all-in-one software package, even if just using the core feature sets and the now included Bodypaint 3 module. Add to it Mocca 3 (which I purchased also), and if you're a 3D modeler/character animator, virtually every major thing you'll need to create really high-quality 3D content and animation is here. A huge bonus is C4D's expandability via the modules (which are reasonably priced), and it's ability to work with Photoshop directly in Bodypaint. I highly recommend this software. I'm very pleased with my progress in creating 3D content with the use of C4D so far. --
