No single thing would motivate me to upgrade, as I did recently.

It takes a combination of important improvements plus the desire to buy a fine new toy.

I agree. For me, that is better ergonomics, longer battery life and better sensor performance. (That might be a Panasonic GH4 in 18-24 months.)

I've looked at that camera, and IMO it's very desirable indeed, especially for anyone who might want to do 4K video. There's a pro here in Austin who just loves it, Kirk Tuck. You might want to have a look at his blog. (not a personal promo, heh. I've never met the man).

For me, better ergonomics/user interface is probably the most important single factor; my previous A57 was plenty good enough for me in most other respects.

However, a big chunk of money with no claims on it is the most important thing.

That's always helpful.
