That is, body, SDHC cards, spare battery, and upgrade to Light Room 5.

The upgrade to LightRoom is what bothered me the most, why can't they simply update Camera Raw for the older versions? Oh well, going from LR 3.6 to the latest, it is about time.

Now I suppose they want me to upgrade to CS 6 from CS 5..

Yes. Camera raw 7.4 and later supports the D7100 but it needs CS6.

No, what they want you to do is sign up for Creative Cloud and pay them a monthly fee. The good news, though, is that you'll get both LR and PS upgraded.

Is Creative Cloud (subscription model) the way to go? Or to purchase LR5 standalone, with its perpetual license?

In other words, is having access to PS (and the rest of Adobe's product suite) worth the expense of signing up for a monthly (or annual) fee?

I'm trying to get a feel for what kind of useful image manipulation features I would gain that don't come with LR5.

Paid $999 for my 7100 body, so be a bit careful.

Watch that the extra battery is in fact a NIKON battery, and the SD cards should be UHC-1 to get the max speed out of the 7100, and 16GB minimum.

An upgrade to LR5 is $80, so
1000 + 65 + 40 + 80
body + battery + SDHCcards + LR5 = 1185

Personally I would avoid the packages and price the body, then you can compare prices.

Personally, I am a heavy user of Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and Bridge, so CC was a no-brainer for me, particularly since in my work it is essential to always have the latest versions (nothing worse than asking a client who upgraded before you to back-save a file so you can open it).

If I was only using Lightroom, I probably wouldn't bother. JMHO.

Having PS is good if you want to use it for:

  • HDR
  • Panorama
  • Complex pixel-by-pixel editing
  • Compositing (making one image from several by overlaying them and/or arranging them, and/or drawing lines, text, etc on them)
  • Applying various filter effects beyond what LR does

Whether the cost of CC is worth it depends on whether those kinds of capabilities are important to you.

As for the rest of Abobe's product suite, they tend to be focused on particular graphic-arts uses (print or electronic design and publishing, illustration, etc). If you aren't doing that kind of work, I'm not sure it makes much sense to get the full subscription rather than the LR/PS bundle.

If you want to discuss this more, it would probably be best to open a topic in the Adobe postprocessing forum.

Got my D7100 body only for 1050$ so I am not sure if this is such an amazing deal.
