More incentive for people to forgo buying software, which they dont want. They dont want you to buy their product. They want you to simply rent the privilege to use it sometimes.
Less rights for the customer, more money for the company.
Stephan Def: My issues with the D600:
1. NO articulated Screen. I know the counter arguments, but for me its a fundamental issue. I can be far more creative with an articulated screen period. So someone is going to say: its too slow to focus on-screen, if that is the argument then I have to say: conceptual error, because I will be happy to even focus manually in that case (why no focus peaking?...)
If I get that DSLR then I will get the 24-70 2.8 Lens to go with it (no compromises), and its really overpriced for NOT having VR! If I am going to have to pay that kind of money then I want it all, no excuses please.
Whats the deal with the poor production quality? (Sensor-Dust, Oil)
Reconsider Sony A99? I am not a Sony-fan, but I get more for the money, especially in-body stabilization, articulated screen, focus peaking, higher frame rates, excellent EVF, etc
I see no use in having an articulated screen. I barely see a reason to have a screen at all on anything above an entry level camera. You should be using the the viewfinder for 99% of your shots. The End.
and VR is rarely needed for a 24-70 2.8 Perhaps you should stick to your iPhone camera.
Last for CS5. what a scam. "Sure, you can use this software you paid for as long as you wish. Oh, you want to be able to open your files? Well, you will have to pay for an upgrade then."
