To future-proof equipment

This one is tricky because it requires us to predict the future a bit more. However, there are a couple useful data points we can look at: 1) As a consumer technology, 4K video experienced more rapid adoption than many expected, and 2) The trend among camera buyers is to upgrade their cameras less frequently than they did in the past.

This suggests that 8K technology could be widely available more quickly than we anticipate as well. In fact, it's already showing up on some smartphones. As a result, if you plan to keep your next camera for a while and want to make sure it's future-proof, then it may be a good idea to ensure your next purchase is 8K-ready.
