I pulled the trigger on the Adobe Creative Cloud for $50/month. It would take me at least 30 months (cheapest price point, CS5) at $50 to buy the suite so I figure I'm good plus I get the free upgrades and the bonus....? I don't pay the annual fee all at once, but at $50/month and collect interest on the balance.
I couldn't afford the 5d3 AND the price of just one program much less the entire suite to support as it was, so this is an excellent alternative and I GET IT ALL on the 10th!!!! Hopefully. Now I get CS6, Premiere Pro, and After Effects plus whatever else I have the time for. I figure in 30 months I will know one of them well.
Thanks Mt. Spokane and psolberg for the tips.
