Yes, "must" (you forgot the italics). I may only be one, but (a) whether or not I buy the 100D (or any other APS-C camera) depends largely on whether or not Canon comes up with a small EF-S prime to match; and (b) the 60D/7D replacement is now so long overdue and horrendously under-spec'ed compared to the Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus offerings that neither they (the 60D and the 7D) nor the 6D is a viable option for me (singular, one).
At least there was one image in the brochure which I found inspiring...
Which one are you missing?
If anyone is interested, here's what Scott Kelby says about CC
Of course, it's to some extent a biased opinion but anyway...
Fantastic lens but the cost is a lot. USA £7800, UK£ 12000. Over a third more expensive. Ouch!
See it from the bright side, you can do a weekend trip to New York, live in a swanky hotel and eat nice and on the Saturday pick a lens up from an actual shop stocking it while still saving money overall.
That price differnetial isn't the fault of Canon....they base price to the dealers is pretty much the same. It's juat a bit of blatent profiteering from the UK vendors who are selling at full RRP and think they will sell every copy they can get their grubby hands on.
At the current price differential, get a standby flight to the US and go and get one Stateside. It'll cost you time and energy, but will yeild a serious price saving.
Photoshop Elements does not meet the requirements of the large group of amateur photographers who have graduated from point and shoots and only use RAW files. PSE is more for JPG users.
How'd you work that one out? I only shoot RAW and happily use Elements
It's great that Elements works for you. My point is that Adobe clearly aims at the family photographer producing JPGs. The almost complete lack of 16 bit support (why bother when JPGs are 8 bit), ACR with many features disabled, restrictions on curves and adjustment layers, etc, etc, and the whole template scheme for thngs such as greeting cards and albums support the conclusion about its intended market. Once again, it's great that it works for you and maybe you're better off than the rest of us who have become used to making extensive use of these features.
In response to other postings regarding Scott Kelby's Q&A - Scott says that at some point in the future if you don't like an increase in price you can simply stop paying. This is utter nonsense since you then lose access to your data!
Now imagine if you are renting Lightroom and then stop paying. Now you are completely locked out of all adjustments that you have made while paying over perhaps years. Scary stuff.
