I had a relatively good month on 123 in September, but October is on pace for 60% of the sales of September. It's been a very slow month so far and I wonder if buyers are leaving 123 for other FT.

At the same time, FT is rising. I have 3 times the amount of sales with 1/5 the portfolio size of 123. Quite surprising to be honest.

I have 3000 images on both and very similar income from both in last 12 months. But I think you are right. FT has much brighter future with Adobe's enormous customer base. Well, who likes 123's captcha anyway  ;D

123 has definitely dropped the past couple of months and FT has been doing better.  So far this month FT is doing very well - they are #2 after SS - while 123 is all but dead relatively speaking and less than 20% of FT. A pleasant surprise has been a higher RPDL at FT with some very nice subs as well as credit sales, while 123 after putting in the RC system has dropped dramatically.

I'm seeing exactly the opposite.  I'm on track for a BME at 123RF, which is outperforming SS by a considerable margin.  I don't have much on Fotolia; I removed most of my content the last time they reduced royalties and moved the goalposts out of reach.  I've uploaded a few since Adobe took them on but haven't seen more than small signs of life there since the acquisition.
