imho it is a terrific deal IF there was some price protection beyond year 1, AND if your work depended on staying current with the latest, and greatest ,  AND you are not already invested in non-rental software AND you are always connected to a fast internet connection when you are working.  Offline work maybe possible I dont know -- synchronization issues notwithstanding...

Nailed it.

The lack of price protection is the nail in the coffin, IMHO.

I've seen a variety of responses and wonder if anyone can concretely answer the question: What happens to the applications after the 12 month period is up if the CC service is not renewed?

The last I understood the apps remain and will work though no new features will be added/updated/installed and the cloud storage space is reduced to 2GB. How far off the mark am I?

I spoke with an Adobe rep via chat and was told the following:

Selena: After 12 months if you will not renew your subscription you will not have access to use the software.

I read a description by someone who bought the $749 version. I misunderstood what 'white box' meant. My macro came in a 'white box' but it had other words and logos printed on it. I didn't realize 'white box' meant that it is completely white and has no additional content - ex: instructions, etc.

Good to know. I'll double check it when I get home tonight.

Ahhh. So that's what 'white box' means. I recently bought a 100mm macro from Amazon and wondered why the price had been dropped. It arrived in a white box as well. #brainsplode

Help a relative noob out? How can this significant a price cut be done without the retailer losing ample amounts of money? Or is it that they don't care?

The main question... Is there anything different between the ~1100 and ~800 lenses being sold on Amazon?

Noob at reading these charts here. The x and y axis are not labelled, what should be there?

Thanks for your thoughts. The price just jumped back up to $1,519.00. Ah well.

Looks like it's over. Now the CR link doesn't have the $1199 price.

Yep. Back up to $1,519.00.

Whoa! That's a fabulous price for the 7D.

I've been debating the T3i (waiting on the T4i) and the 60D but put the 7D out of contention because of the cost. Is this a too good to pass up discount?
