Depressing reading! Of course there may be many reasons for this including the often repeated impact of smartphones and in many regions a less than buoyant economy but perhaps one of the major reasons is just us.

I suspect a lot of users are tired of the perpetual merry go round of upgrading for dubious reasons. At some point, the party ends. Cameras are now at the point where improvements are incremental, not earth shattering, and are good enough for the needs of anyone who actually uses them to take pictures of things other than brick walls and resolution charts.
