13 inch MacBook Pro Retina 8GB For Photo Editing?

I have a mid 2010 macbook pro that pooped on me.  That means I am getting a new MacBook Pro soon.  On my mid 2010 macbook pro, I had 8GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD.  With the new ones having a newer processor, newer PCI-E, and newer RAM, would 8GB be enough for me to do photoshop and lightroom together?  Maybe some slight video editing here and there.

I have final cut pro x and have been using it for a little while.  It runs well on my mid 2010 macbook pro.  I have funds for the 8GB of RAM and NOT the 16GB 13 inch upgrade.

Thoughts on the 8GB retina macbook pro 13 inch?  Would 8GB be enough for me with photoshop and lightroom?
