A great example of this was in film cameras. Once they developed coated lenses, there was very little IQ improvement IMHO for most uses. Mostly it was convenience like AF and zooms, more compact etc. When I shot with film, some of my best images were made with a 1950's twin lens rolleicord.

Most of the advances in IQ were in the film. With a digital camera the body is the "film" and I imagine there will always be improvements in this part of the system. Imagine how useful a 1950's rolleicord would have been compared to a 1990's model if the same film couldn't have been used in both?
