It's already cheaper than the 5DII when it was at it's lowest. Can't see it dropping much lower than the $1500 zone. Am sure there will be some deals on ebay now and again. Personally I would buy it at $1200, that would make me sell my 5D2.
So I guess your gonna buy a 6D then? $1233 at digitalmonster. I have been very tempted. http://www.digitalmonster.com/Canon_EOS_6D_20_Megapixel_Digital_SLR_Camera_-_Body_Only_2616.html
Moral question - how would feel if a homeless person decided to move in with you - after they have place to live. Or if someone who was hungry and unemployed/broke came into your home and took food. Or if someone who was broke took $ out of bank account or you pocket. Not too happy I'll bet. In a way you are doing this to Abode.
This isn't the same thing at all. Not paying a licensing fee for a digital copy of a work is not the moral equivalent of taking money out of someone's account or pocket or stealing a physical item. And while I have not yet licensed PS, I am a paying customer for Lightroom 4 and 5. I make no money for my photography at this time and use PS very little, so to put my situation in terms of your example, I am the roommate who pays rent, but bums some of your food. The real problem with Adobe's pricing in general is that it doesn't work well or at all for hobbyists. They could remedy this in CC better than they ever could before with a real pay-as-you-go plan. They could charge $3-4/hour with a maximum monthly charge of the normal subscription rate.
I have to disagree with you, there's Adobe hobbyist alternatives, Photoshop Element, Premiere Element and Lightroom (since version 4). So having a copy of PS without a license, is stealing, plain and simple. CC isn't the only route to Adobe's products for photographers and videographers pro or hobbyist, I know quite a few pros who are quite happy with the Element version of Photoshop and Premiere.
Have you actually used a Windows Phone 8 device? They are certainly not a joke, and after owning several generations of iPhone, I much prefer the Metro experience. The app gap is shrinking fast, and most of the apps I want are already available, and those that aren't are either coming, or I can write myself. I'd also point out that as the Android vs. iPhone battle has raged, iPhone has been losing, while Android and Windows have been gaining. Windows market share is about doubling every year, particularly with the Nokia Lumia phones. Again, I think people who skip past a Lumia just because its Nokia or just because its Windows are short changing themselves.
On average, the capabilities of most any modern DSLR far outstrip the capabilities of the photographer using it.I wish I could shoot to my cameras capabilities sorry but I see very few who can !!I see a lot who think they can !
The same phenomenon applies to violinists. 99.99999% will never exceed the capabilities of whatever instrument they play. It's the very rare talent like an Itzak Perlman or Issac Stern that can tell and exploit the difference between playing a Stradivarious and something else. And even though they can exploit that difference, 99.9999% of the people listening to them wouldn't know the difference.
My 5D Mark III (and 5D2 before it) produces images that consistenly mange to water my own eyes when I excel in at my job of composing, exposing and processing the image. I'll spend my time and efforts perfecting those skills rather than chasing bits and bytes, thank you very much.
