I'm back at 40k again and have bought and built most of my Sisters army.

Personally, I love the list quite a bit. It does seem a tad low on faith points, but then again I love my flying canonesses. I think the retributor would be a point sink, but sometimes my exorcists don't roll as high as I want to for missile count.
I think the only thing that might happen is leaving your retributors behind and enemies drop podding or deep striking next to them to eliminate them.
Personally the only thing I would drop is the retributors in favor of another exorcist, and with the spare points..maybe give your vets a brazier for some more template goodness.
You might consider making your SoB troops with HFlamer/Flamer (two Squads) and one squad with twin melta. the flaming squads will be horrible death to all infantry (divine guidance and 2 templates is sick, esp vs marines)
The twin melta squad will be able to more successfully pop tanks, and can still deal a good deal of damage to troops with the mass of bolters.
I don't think you'll need a Rosarius on the Cannoness, maybe detach her, and run her with the celestians.
honestly though, I'm used to running my cannoness with a jump pack, and trailing the Seraphim.
You might also consider either upgrading the Retributor superior to a Vet for the faith,
or picking up a Demonhunters shooty inq. squad with psycannon, plas cannon, and 2 HBolter goodness. tack on some sages, and you'll have the Deepstrikers thinking twice.
