Who's perception of time is valid here? Is two years a really long time, or is it as it seems to me very recent to the point that I feel like my D7000 is just getting broken in. I told a friend of mine the other day whom I had recommended the D90 to about three years ago, that it was time for him to upgrade to the D7100. ARE YOU NUTS, I JUST GOT THE THING ON YOUR ADVISE!

I was just thinking about that, how you still see lots of folks on the street with D80 and D90's (And T3i's and T2i's) but the only people I know with D7000's or up are the few hardcore enthusiasts. The upgrade path is getting into diminishing returns... I can't see any of my friends with D90's wanting to go for the D7100, the insta-buy factor just isn't the same as it was before.

Yeah it seems unlikely that anyone who isn't a camera enthusiast will ever notice a difference between a T2i, and a D7000, or 7100 for that matter . Having noted that, I've been into photography for about forty years, and the rapidity of changing models seems just ridiculous at this point.

Anyway, I guess the advise to buy every other model incarnation makes more sense practically, being that, that brings us right up to the old 5 year mark of film camera model changes.
