It was a lot cheaper to change to the latest film

>> When I was using 35mm film cameras the only time I upgraded my body (camera) was when one got damaged or ceased working. All the money went into improved lenses.

With the advent of digital cameras the whole emphasis has changed. <<

With a 35mm camera the camera was intended only to meter, focus, expose the film, and put some fresh film in place.  You could choose from many different kinds of film and the film manufacturers had new versions of their products from time to time.  Today the improvements in the sensor and related electronics - the functional equivalent of film - are made in new models of the hardware, you can't just buy a few rolls of the latest and greatest film.
