Thanks Chris,

That's a worthwhile consideration. I could do $10 per month. But if I keep using the D850 for 8 years I'll be at $960 in total subscription costs.

Photoshop CS6 (the last full version) retailed for $700 (though you could find a sale)

An upgrade was $150 (conservatively--I think was actually $180 at the end for full product upgrades).

Assuming that non-subscription products and upgrades still existed: If you bought one CS6 retail package and ungraded it every 2 years (this is the only honest way to compare to a subscription product that give you frequent updates), the cost would be $1,300 in 8 years (1 full price, 3 upgrades)

Of course, if you never upgraded, it would be a lot less. I already listed the downsides to never upgrading in my previous post.
