Still don't agree

My whole point was with photography the subjects don't change. If a camera took a great picture of a subject 40 years ago it will today. My Minolta SRT 101 purchased in 1970 will take just as good (some would argue better) photos as any Full Frame camera made today. Computers today can do things impossible only 10 years ago. With cameras new tech is for convenience more than better IQ. I can live without the convenience. Any improvements in IQ are marginal at best and mostly at high iso's. I'm sticking with my A100 until it breaks because it does everything I want it to.

I used to upgrade computers every 4 years or so although I do have to admit my present Dell is 4 years old and still does everything a new computer does just as well. Maybe PC tech has reached a point where we can use them until they break too.
