So evidently from reading comments below, this camera is assumed to have taken photos other than the staged (fake) setup shot shown in the article. Today, isn't it true a photographer would be fired if he did this for his news agency?

If LR ever goes to being exclusively CC, what are folks' guesses as to what LR only would go for on subscription basis (ie. without PS as part of it)? I'd guess about $3 or $4 per month for a prior user/owner of LR.

Or is it surmised we'd be forced to the $120/year even if all we want is LR and don't need the editing tools of PS. Or perhaps they'll come up with a LR/Elements CC deal ($5 per month)

"And to think I have full functionality forever with my non-cloud version of Lightroom."

True, but only with cameras that are on the market today or prior.

PicOne: How do upgrade fees (to eg. LR6) get calculated if the upgrade becomes available somewhere in the middle of your 1yr contract?

IOW, to say this $9.99/month cost structure is "permanent" doesn't mean much if LR5 is about to be replaced.

"Depending on which plan you choose, your membership includes access to..."

This is pretty clear? What is "access"? Maybe if "access" was replaced with "entitled to" that would be more clear.

All of the PR keeps repeating "Lightroom 5" specifically. Not just "Lightroom", or "the current version of Lightroom".

Stickarm: on US site navigating to all products is bouncing me to Education and student pages only. Hard typing the address I'm getting a "website declined to show this page" message.

Same on uk site.

Besides, off the street shoppers looking to buy LR -- why would they even consider going to an All Products page when they want to buy LR?

So. There seems to be a way for now to purchase the standalone. However, for the stupid people out there's sake, can u tell me how the customer "off the street" visiting www.adobe.com actually navigates to the catalog page you linked? It must be really obvious and intuitive and I'm just stupid.

What isn't said above, is that seemingly you can now ONLY GET LR IF YOU SUBSCRIBE to the $9.99/mo plan. The option to purchase standalone LR is seemingly gone from Adobe's site if you click the How To Buy link

DRNottage: I use Lightroom 75% of the time for my workflow. If they go to subscription-only with it, screw them. And Lightroom for ios only? As I said, screw them. (Because they ARE screwing us, no matter how one attempts to rationalize it.)

I think LR is already subscription-only.. At least I can't find any option to buy LR other than thru the $9.99/month model. And it's unclear, would LR be deactivated after the year's period if I don't continue paying?

In reply to:

mumintroll: As I predicted. Adobe lower the prices to lure new stupid customers.

2nd paragraph indicates it's permanent, fwiw. The 1yr was about contract required (presumably to ensure Adobe gets enough $ in return for giving buyers LR5).

BillGarrett: An 18-xxx zoom with variable aperture is, to me, a convenience lens even if it is waterproof. It's good that Fuji has released it because it fills a slot in their lens lineup. Some people will buy it. But I am infinitely more interested in their promised 16-55 f/2.8 zoom. Wider and constant aperture.

Indeed.. on more than a few occasions, I wonder what 'sacrifices' have been made with these lauded fixed aperture lenses.. eg. could my 24-105 f/4 lens really have been an f/3.5-4 lens, but the maker decided that constant f/4 would be perceived as higher-end and sell for more money, so perhaps a conscious decision to make it fixed at the higher common denominator? you never know..

Constant aperture is highly overrated.. You want aperture fixed, then set the lens at f/5.6 and it won't change. Variable aperture gets the widest aperture possible for the size of the lens being made. You want a fixed f/4 lens, then it will be bigger.

PicOne: Why am I confused on this matter? Ok, it's 12mm. 12mm is 12mm. BUt how does a 12mm offer the same angle of view (98.9 degrees per above), irregardless of the sensor's crop factor (eg. M43 vs. APSC, etc?)

Irregardless, look up the definition of word (which has probably appeared in the Oxford dictionary for quite a while), and you'll find that it's basically a written or spoken sound or combination of sounds that has meaning. Everyone, including you I suspect, understood the meaning, making it a word.

Much the similar result may be had with a latest-generation Sigma camera and it's B&W raw conversions.
