Those days are ending!

The days where image quality would significantly improve, or where one feature would make someone upgrade are gone. Camera makers are blaming everything except the possibility that the camera sales were inflated because there was a marked improvement.

Having used digital cameras since 1989 I've seen a lot of improvement, but the last camera I bought was the one to say I'm going to stop buying for a while because this camera is (almost) perfect. Anything new I tried since hasn't been a noticeable improvement.

OK, occasionally a manufacturer will invent a new feature that the market would go crazy for (like Olympus E-M5's Live Bulb mode), but how often does that happen?
