Another Hasselblad Lunar hands-on report: “the camera immediately becomes disappointing in terms of its finish”
Two new Canon PowerShot cameras have been leaked form a recent filing in a Taiwanese government agency. Those are most likely the new products that will be announced at the May 31 press conference. The Canon S200 will have a 5.2-26mm f/2-5.9 (35mm equivalent: 24-120mm) and is probably the replacement for the popular S110 model. The second camera appears to be the replacement for the SX500 IS super zoom:

The Australian-born photographer Brad Morris had the chance to play with the Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera after he ran into some guys who had the camera on the streets of Hong Kong. He shared his first impressions on the.me:
The new Zeiss Touit 12mm f/2.8 and 32mm f/1.8 lenses are expected to start shipping in 6-8 weeks. B&H has also listed the 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens for X and E mounts that was announced at Photokina last year. The shipping date for now is October 1st:

Tamron filed a patent in Japan (2013-83783) for a 35mm f/1.4 APS-C mirrorless lens (50mm equivalent in full frame). Few months ago the company also filed a patent for a new 50mm f/1.8 APS-C lens. Currently Tamron has only two zoom lenses for mirrorless cameras: 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC for Sony E mount and 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III VC for Micro Four Thirds.
The website eoszine.nl mentioned on Twitter that Canon Netherlands will have a press event on May 31. There have not been any rumors about upcoming Canon cameras or lenses. This scheduled press event could be for printers or video products.

Several websites have published Q&A sections to clear all the "misunderstandings" about moving Photoshop CC to a cloud based subscription - see some of the posts by Adobe, Engadget, Dpreview and Scott Kelby. No matter what others are saying, Adobe is taking away an option that you previously had: buy a stand alone version or sign up for monthly subscription. This option will no longer be available after the company stops updating ACR. Even if I decide to never update to a new version of Photoshop, I still have the ability to edit all digital images I took in the past decade. Once you move to a monthly subscription and you stop paying few years down the line, you no longer have a way to use the tool. I personally will be sticking with CS6 for as long as I can and see how this whole thing will play out in the next 2-3 years.
If you believe in online petitions (I don't), change.org is currently collecting signatures to eliminate the mandatory "creative cloud" subscription model.
Adobe is also considering creating a photographer’s bundle with only Photoshop CC and Lightroom:
