Lots of room for everybody in the sandbox

When M4/3's came out, all you read was about the "demise of traditional SLR cameras." And they still seem to be doing just fine. Now we have the equivalent of the iPhone in photography and now we hear about the demise of m4/3.

They all have their place and each will fit a different need and requirement, and I suppose, demographics.

But if technology is the be-all end-all, why are there still people willing to spend $7000 for a Leica M9 rangefinder?

The marketplace will sort all this out. And if people want the iCamera or 1950's rangefinder, camera makers will built it as long as they can sell it.
