How often do you upgrade/longevity of cameras
Apr 13, 2011

As someone who is stepping up to the world of DSLR/SLT, A55 to be exact, realistically how long should I expect to keep this camera? In today's electronic world, pre- earthquake (who knows how long it will take to get back to "normal"), manufactures come up with new products/refreshes almost yearly now. iPhone is a good example, in 1 year your fancy new phone is "old." I assume as a beginner I will probably, at least I hope keep the camera for quite a few years, 3-5, is that a realistic, before even considering an upgrade? Also do these cameras last a few years, seems today's electronics break/wear-out a lot faster...
