Clint Dunn: The funniest thing about the litany of complaints here is that the majority of you don't pay for the SW...you use pirated copies. Go ahead...tell me I'm wrong:) For every Pro out there with a legit copy of PS is a 'Pro' doing $500 weddings on weekends with $2000 of SW they got off a torrent site.
I have very little choice to not buy this software. As a photographer and a digital tech, I can perhaps manage to not upgrade for about 18 months, but after that.... I'm actually tempted to get the upgrade right now just to be able to use clarity as a filter. For many people, there really is no choice in the matter.
I do think the the price should come down a little though.
Sam Carriere: I am sure this is a good competent camera, but Nikon and Canon just don't seem to get it. The models that capture people's imagination these days are the ones that try to reimagine the same-old same-old -- like the Fuji X10 or the Sony RX 100 or even the NEX series, for all their shortcomings. I can't conceive of where the market is for this good, competent camera, in a field already so crowded with other good, competent cameras.And by the way, does anyone ever actually USE an articulated screen?
I won't buy a compact without one.
