I'm excited; I wonder how powerful/accurate/usable it'll be.

Yup, interesting stuff. I like Syntheyes, it always gets the job done - but the interface is a drag, and the workflow too; so if AE gets the job done as well (big if) and the camera is usable in Cinema, then I'm in.

This is cool. Anything that reduces the number of plug-ins/software I have to buy is cool. Hope it works well!

It might, it might not. The limitations are the same as with The Foundry's 3D tracker or other such tools - it's an uncalibrated track and AE thinks in pixels, so whatever may come out when exporting may not align in any sensible way, be upside down and at the most nonsense scale you can imagine. It's not gonna replace SynthEyes or otehrs, it may just make you use them a little less often.

That's for sure. It's not about the cost, but the pain in the ass that comes with managing the updates, future and backwards compatibility, etc. (Adobe - please note that this is not a suggestion that you integrate a plug-in store within AE).

This is cool. Anything that reduces the number of plug-ins/software I have to buy is cool. Hope it works well!

After how well the Warp Stabilizer turned out (and the fact that the Roto Brush actually works really well), I have pretty high hopes for this.

For some jobs it'll probably be just the ticket, a real time-and-headache-saver. For others you probably wouldn't trust it, and there's no reason why you can't make that decision on a shot-by-shot basis. I reckon it's a good thing.
