Assuming you actually use your cameras, I would say that after about 5 years, the advances in technology will probably make upgrading a worthwhile prospect.

Oppose Tyranny in all its forms.

On the other hand, we often quite see a saturation curve, with rapid and Very noticeable progress in the beginning, and much slower and gradual progress later on.

With computers, that rapid and exponential progress was in the 1990ies, with digital cameras, it was in the 2000ies.

A digital camera bought in the 2006-2008 years period is much more useable than one bought around 2000 ... and as one bough around 2000 was already in 2006.
