Actually, Gary, in Japan there is an assumption that people buy new cameras more often than in the States. Dealers put a lot of pressure on the manufacturers to bring out new features annually. There is consumer demand for quality that would last decades - but dealer demand for features that encourage annual turnover.

Interesting.  I've been upgrading my digital cameras about every 3 years.  With each upgrade, the IQ difference is pretty substantial.  It's starting to taper off, though -- diminishing returns.  There's still plenty of room for improvements, but I wonder -- if my Nex-6 does everything I need from a camera, what will it take to sell me another?  Well, I'm good for another 2.5 years anyway.
