There was a time when certain cameras were collectible. In fact, many of those cameras are still collectible. They are the classics! They are also film cameras. The Leicas, some Nikons, Canons and others are or have been much sought after, years after their production runs ended. But in this digital age, where a new chip makes the old chip obsolete, we want that new chip, that new processor, and the DSLR that has the old chip is sent to the scrap heap after a few years, remembered, but not cherished.

If camera technology ever reaches a point when the chip doesn't change, then perhaps we will have classics again. I wouldn't hold my breath for that to happen.
