So I'm now a "renter" instead of an "owner". Thanks Adobe.... NOT. I don't plan to trade in my "perpetual license" for a PERPETUAL LEASE.
The creative suite is a mature product and important "gotta have it" features will become far less frequent. Therefore, in order to grow revenues, a monthly tax will be imposed for its continued use. Its the ubiquitous monthly lease plan. Companies do make more off of those who perpetually lease and never own, all conveniently broken down into "small monthly payments". The cost of entry is reduced, but over time you will spend far more. Most consumers are only concerned with "what will my monthly payment be?".
I will not trade in my "perpetual license" for a perpetual lease payment.
OK, I'll trust them now that they've back pedaled..... NOT!
The 2.5 BILLION dollar project uses cameras sporting a whole 2 megapixes? Oh, the image is murky because the camera's removable dust cover is apparently coated with dust blown onto the camera during the rover's terminal descent. I guess they didn't take into account Mars might have some dust. That's 2,500 million dollars. Dang, if that Nikon 800 didn't have that focus issue....
photo nuts: This is so fun. Re-ignition of the never-ending Canon-Nikon war!
Anyway, the D800 scores higher for (i) image quality (RAW and jpeg) (ii) low light ISO (iii) movie/video mode (iv) value.
The 5D3 scores higher for features and performance.
They end up with the same overall score. Hmmmm....
Amazon owns dpreview. Amazon sells both cameras and is enjoying their current popularity I'm sure. Its no surprise that in order to keep all buyers happy they got "equal" but different scores.
Rob: Please post a few of the RAW image files. I want to know if the loss of detail is noise reduction coming off the chip, or noise reduction processing for jpg.
DPP from Canon for now I guess, maybe it would require an update which Canon could provide. Soon an update from Adobe unless they pull the "you have to update us as well" like they did with the 5d2.

Installed this for my W7 64 bit system. I only wanted to be able to view image thumbnails when browsing in Explorer, but it does't. It shows a CR2 file type thumbnail, but no thumbnail of the image. Should it show thumbnail of the image?
