I'm not surprised. Apple is not specifically into photography. I'm a Mac user, always have been, but when I got into photography I chose Lightroom over Aperture, thinking that Lightroom would probably be around for a long time as this is what Adobe does, but Aperture probably wouldn't because this is not what Apple does. I'm not glad to have been proven right, but I am glad I chose Lightroom.
Good insight Levina, but it really seemed/seems that Apple was trying to pursue the photography market (but by camera phone, not by dSLR).
