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.

I would still be using my D70S if it were not broken. I will be using my D300S until it no longer works.

I can't say the same thing about my *istD. At 12 seconds to write a file, it wasn't especially awe inspiring, even in it's day. I'm on my fifth DSLR now, each one a big enough step from the last one that I felt OK with it, but with the K5, I'm pretty content. Mine has the really bad low light focusing that plagues the model, but it isn't enough to make me want a K5II. I'll probably run my K5 until it dies, unless Ricoh does something incredible....
