The cameras we have are more than we need for good photography. But we are lulled into having the latest and greatest tech because - it's there! Canon needs us to keep buying new cameras, "upgrading", etc. That's capitalism.

Personally, I am not looking for the latest and greatest.  I have no interest in WIFI, GPS, or any other bells and whistles.  My current camera does limit me.  I want to be able to print large and more megapixels would be really useful.  Less noise would also help improve my photography.  The focus on my T3i leaves a lot to be desired.  It hunts for closeup and macro shooting and really has difficulty tracking birds in flight and other rapidly moving objects.   The built quality leaves a lot to be desired.  It is tough to shoot in rainy conditions. I also had lots of issues in Death Valley.  No matter how much care I used, dust worked its way into the camera body and the sensor needed wet cleaning every week or so.  I shoot lots so I could also use a more durable camera.  My Xsi burnt the shutter after about 50k actuations.
