There is a conflicting interest between what the user really needs and what the companies need. And companies need to sell you a new camera every xxx time. To do this they make you "want", just in case you don't "need".

In general I'd say that new is usually better, but then most of the time there are just small improvements, or even just "selling gimmicks".

I personally like to jump a few generations, this way my new stuff is always quite impressive.

This tends to happen with new technology, at first there are great leaps, that go getting slower and slower. As the technology matures.
