curlyone: I was using photoshop 3 about 20 years ago,
Problems arise when a company has a monopoly and needs to raise revenue by forcing people to buy upgrades. Get a new digital camera and you have to purchase the latest version of Photoshop. My first version of Photoshop was 3 and that was because Adobe bought out the software company whose product I was using and killed the software. They did that with the company that produced the product that became Lightroom, Adobe did it with Pagemaker, and they did it with Macromedia which produced Freehand and Flash. Adobe has through the years bought up its competition until now there are no competitors for Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, etc. and Apple is not really a competitor when they only produce software versions that will run only on Apple computers.
This is reflected in the price of the Adobe software and their low level of customer service.
The AF improvements are going to be of little or no value in real world situations. One still has to select the point of focus, only now with a finger, and then reframe the shot which is not going to be practical for photographing anything that moves.
Both an optical viewfinder and a separate focus point selector button is needed to make this type of camera truly practical for shooting moving subjects. For now a small DSLR is far superior in these two aspects and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.
