Adobe is doing a great job with their Lightroom Mobile iOS and Android apps

Not sure about desktop Lightroom

Adobe is doing a great job with their Lightroom Mobile apps on iOS and Android. On the Notes they support the stylus (long live the Note 5, it's a great phone sad about the EOL'd Note 7), on the iPhone 7 Plus they support the 2 camera sensors and many more... Kudos to the team!

For $US30 a month for 2 years I can have an iPhone 7 plus so why do I need a point and shoot?

I actually think it's less than $30 a month (and the inevitable Samsung two camera sensor cameraphone iPhone clone will be cheaper in a year or two). And then after 2 years the phone is yours.

PREDICTION:By 31Dec2016 there will be an awesome iPad Pro RAW editor

check back in Dec 2016 to see if I am right

You get what you pay for :-) But I think all you need is something like Lightroom Mobile but programmed from an iPad Pro point of view first (i.e. including stylus and keyboard and solving the external storage / SD import problem AND not needing desktop sync or any other legacy kludges)!!!!!!
