Why yes, people 'round these parts seem to think in dog years instead of human ones, but generally speaking 15-20 years for a technological breakthrough to become commonplace is pretty normal. Did you know we had CD-ROMs back in the late '80s? and that the Internet is even older than that?

Or, for an example that should be closer to home: the first SLR was made in 1936, it arguably matured only in 1959 with the Nikon F, but the end of the rangefinder era is commonly believed to have been in 1976 with the release of the Canon AE-1; between 17 and 40 years, depending from which point you count, yet nobody would deny it was the SLR that killed the rangefinder and relegated it to the niche it currently occupies.

Well, the Sony A77 is your Nikon F
