Back in the day, I bought a Nikon F and it was in production for 10 more years. Now we buy a new camera and a few months later a new model is announced and our model looses half its value and we NEED to upgrade. Whats up with this? Is it greed on the part of the camera manufacturers or do they not think out the development far enough, and just bypass the old model and make a new one with the new features. I absolutely hate it.
