Don't pity the people who are actually enjoying their cameras now, rather than always waiting for the next "breakthrough".

Notice also that all superlatives in my and your quote above, are best used in marketing, but usually mean much less in terms of real life output differences.

I agree to both your statements. Of course not everybody - but I am sure some do - is looking for the resale value, and this should not diminish the fun with using your current gear. And I should have put those superlatives into quotation marks - who knows what will come. I have been disappointed before by SONY, e.g. by the announced "highly improved" focus speed of the NEX's on-sensor PDAF sensors.
