I'm sure other companies will be watching Adobe to see if the subscription model for programs is viable with consumers. Not subscribing will be like a "no" vote for the entire subscription model. A success for this subscription cloud model will mean more monthly bills for those of us who use our computers for just about anything.
I was disappointed that there was no mode dial, as in bright sun that screen will be a pain to use for things like switching modes, but it's the lack of either a built in or optional EVF that will keep me from buying this camera. Too bad, as I've been considering APS-C mirrorless cameras, and the new Canon has got features (plus the size/weight) that would have made it my next camera otherwise.
Gesture: Yes, $1,000 for a "beginner's" camera. But when I see how little $250-$350 buys for a compact camera at a store like Target these days, I understand.
You can buy an entry level Canon DSLR (the T3) for $499, a Nikon D3100 for a few bucks more, and an entry level Sony DSLR for less.
