arry_girl: Two things I feel Adobe adeptly doesn't address:

1). If going the Cloud route, how much will monthly fees increase & how soon?

2). Will your computer be able to handle the latest upgrades? Cloud users have the option to not DL the latest. But when calculating whether or not it's worth it to go the subscription route, I wonder how many factor this into the equation.

Didn't know that.

The ACC is only viable for those who take advantage of the multiple programs. I plan in a couple months to upgrade my computer and try their cloud service. I may drop the service or keep it. I currently use Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and Acrobat. Should be interesting in the cloud.

Canceling is always an option.

Best part is the Zeiss lens. I would love for this camera to have external shutter and ASA controls circa 1960 too.

DPReview is a fun read, but I have to take what they say with a grain of salt. I prefer to examine reviews from diverse outlets before coming to any conclusion. Even after I spend my hard-earned cash I understand that sooner than I would like, my beautiful-new camera will become obsolete. Thankfully, a great lens has some staying power.

Fujinon lenses trump Sony lenses. Yes, they are smaller and sharper. Can't beat that.

Sweet little camera. I have always like Fujinon lenses.

I read, "Would this camera be taken more seriously if it were labeled Hasselblad?" Actually, Hasselblad would of charged another two grand for the privilege.

taotoo: No way will it be sapphire crystal. Probably just a hard plastic.

Smaller... cheaper.

Pavel Sokolov: Who need an unscratchable lens when you should buy new iphone every year? ;)

Pavel, Quite pretentious and childish. Very sad. In America many do the same.

Sony could use some good Hassy/Zeiss lenses.

In reply to:

SLRist: The price could perhaps be justified if all the accessories were bundled, but Sony are clearly taking a huge gouge here. The price of the lens hood is a clear indication of that.

This kind of money is excessive for what is effectively a disposable camera. At least in the days of film, your high quality camera body wouldn't be rendered redundant every 5 years, and retained a reasonable resale value.

If they shaved off 30% of the price and included an EVF I might be interested, but I can't see enough benefit over my X100 to justify an upgrade.

You are right again sir.

Great pictures don't come cheap. I would love one, but I can't rationalize the price. If I were Romney or a Rockefeller, no problem.

The video of the shutter sound is a joke. C'mon, you can do better than that.

This review is bad news for this little camera that couldn't.

When I upgrade to the new iMac, I may have to consider this product.
