a5519: Besides pricing and everything else, there is one more even more severe issue with this Adobe approach.
Under the requirement to validate the license the users actually must agree that Adobe is allowed to spy reqularly their computer - Adobe may validate the license on a computer but they also may look for something else. You don't know.
I am not sure that many private persons will be happy with this approach, nothing to say about companies, which must permit to access to their intranet.
Do you have a link and a quote from their terms of service?
Earthlight: I wonder if this new policy will fly in EU. The EU has given Microsoft some hard time and perhaps they will look into this as well?
What did the EU give Microsoft a hard time for other than antitrust issues for tying their browser to the operating systme? Adobe has a much smaller market share in photo editing than MSFT in OS.
danny006: I think they try to stop the illegal download of photoshop, a smart move I must say.
How does this stop illegal downloads? If pirates can break validation once under the old system, I'd imagine they can break it every so often under the new.
JLWPhoto: The advantages of renting/leasing is it usually comes at a much lower cost then owning (whether you are renting a car, apartment etc). That offsets the fact that after you are done renting you don't own anything.
Those are the two big issues for me.. first is that I don't own anything and I can't choose to keep my old version while I stop paying AND there isn't any significant cost offset for that loss of actual ownership.
>>So if the pricing was cheaper (to offset the lack of ownership), then you'd be happier with it?>>
The problem is both pricing and ownership (including not working if there's a connection issue).
RobertSigmund: All points apply to me - except the last!
Yep. The first four are all major concerns
Arved: Seems investors don't like this, either:
@ CEfan, they didn't announce this 6 months ago. The stock is down since the announcement.
I'd like to see Olympus improve the firmware in the E-M5, etc. Being able to access MySets through the mode dial and SCP would go a long way. Easier access to bracketing is frequently requested.
More high quality lenses should be a priority. Optical quality is key.
The two best are the D800 for its image quality and the E-M5 for an overall package, including image quality and size, and for being a breakthrough camera in its class. I'd give the edge to the E-M5.
Sony gets special mention for its sensor manufacturing
richarddd: I'd prefer posts being listed in chronological order, as is done on just about every other forum, rather than the threaded view currently used.
I'd like a "new" button that actually takes you to the first unread post
Mrgrum's proposal answer's my main issue. The current flat view isn't very good, because you can't tell what people are responding to.
The "new" link on the forum list of threads doesn't work. "next >" only appears in threaded view
I'd prefer posts being listed in chronological order, as is done on just about every other forum, rather than the threaded view currently used.
_ the camera will attempt to track focus during shooting, and maintains a live view feed between frames in the process: the first Olympus Micro Four Thirds camera to do so. In principle this should help track your subject when panning._
Does it work in practice as well as in principle?
Two criticisms of m43 cameras are blanking the EVF while shooting bursts and not great C-AF. How does the E-M5 do?
