J A C S: I guess, LR6 is next.

Of course, but its got its own sets of pro's and con's just like Lightroom etc. For individual editing, its excellent, and that's what I use it for.

backayonder: $9.95 AUD a month for Lightroom and Photoshop less than two mugs of flat white.
Seems a bargain to me. My shelf is littered with worthless copies of Lightroom 1 to 5 and CS versions too.

EDIT- Rent it then, don't care... when enough people put Adobe in a huge financial loss for going to other brands, we'll see how happy you are then when they've continued to raise the *monthly* price to make up for the bloated racket company they creatively created. Enjoy!

Creative Cloud = Gives me butterflies and visions of happy unicorns sharing smiles on a green utopian hillside. Then I wake up.

VREN: Life isn't free. You must pay for upgrades. That said, it is obvious that Adobe is attempting to drag persons kicking and screaming into their subscription-based software, with no appreciation for the customer loyalty that helped them to reach where they are now.

I dont think anyone is afraid to pay, its not the point here. Choice is the point, once you pay for a good, its your good. If you rent a good, rent goes up, landlord tells you what to do.

DCSteve: I got the cc: subscription for $100. $8/month -- the cost of a sandwich. Or, put another way, 1/1000 the cost of my camera gear. For that, I get regular updates, a mobile app that allows me to download and edit on the road (with automatic syncing of full-size images when I get home) and a well-established, cross platform software suite. I don't think it's a bad deal.

DCSteve, so said the crack dealer for the first hit. Good luck giving up your freedom of choice. The only trend with business today is how to become a racket without appearing you do. Its about making the consumer eat what you give them vs. giving them the choice. Rawtherapee and ACR for me- I dont mind converting!

Rick Knepper: Once those who opt for Adobe CC try some of the features not found in CS6, the pain will subside.

Sure Rick, keep dreaming kiddo.

Gregm61: I've tried all sorts of alternatives. I own DXO Elite and have downloaded an trialed Capture one. Owned the "LE" version of it several years ago. I like Photoshop best. It's $10 a month. I waste 10x or more than that much a month on other "stuff". Photoshop, I use. You either buy it or use something else. That's why the other alternatives exist. There are things in life to get excited and worked up over. This isn't one of those things.

Good Greg, Adobe has one customer for its cloud crap. :) You can be king of your own castle! :)

pannyuser: So interesting that this came out today as I dropped my fz200 3 days ago. I had previously been very happy with it I love the versitility - minus the ability to get shallow depth of field blurred backgrounds - as well I would like a slight bump in IQ.

Now I need a replacement. - I do not use my camera for video much at all. I want the versatility and focal length. I loved the 2.8 for that reason. I'd be willing to give up some zoom as a trade of for IQ - should I go for:

FZ300
FZ1000
or
Sony RX10
or Sony RX10 II
or
Olympus Stylus 1

Yep, :) big EVF's are here to stay.

phazelag: Another Olympus in a Casio body.

Ok but nobody answered my question... which Olympus has a 25-300mm lens? The closest is a 28-300mm lens, but that's different. I don't see this Casio being an Olympus camera.

evogt500: Wow, that's actually a pretty good deal (ex-zr3000) considering it has a slightly larger 1/1.7 sensor.

Thinking same thing.

MrViko: 1k for that terrible dynamic range. I'm sorry Canon but you killed the G serie after G16. Also external viewfinder selling is awefull marketing trick for telephoto segment.

You will eh.

In reply to:

Mike FL: Actually, Canon G3X is kind of smaller than just released Pana FZ300 even G3X's SONY sensor is 4 times larger.

The lens is kind of slow, but it seems reasonable as :

- RX10 is F2.8 @200mm.
- FZ1000 is (one stop slow) F4 @400mm, and
- G3X is (one more stop slow) F5.6 @600mm

Not sure about G3X's lens IQ, but FZ1000 is bad comparing to RX10.

Canon should release two version of G3X liking SONY. SONY always has two version of very much the same camera, a6000 and a5100 for example. One with EVF, one without.

Good crack you're on Mike, sorry :)

Maybe, maybe not.

Small and cheap? ... are you a rich giant?

NowHearThis- For some is the key to your statement, not most. These days its best to appeal to most, not some, of the market. Canon's Powershot division has always been a leader and awesome division for them, but not including finders in the recent announcements makes the division look a bit dated. At least they are wise enough to use Sony's superior sensors :).

In reply to:

chillgreg: The REAL problem with this camera is the price. I returned my FZ1000 because of the massive size and weight - this seems perfect for me. But at $1100-1200 +EVF/case in Australia they can forget it...

Yep.
