I think the bottle neck lies in what happens to the images once they are taken, and unless processing and printing becomes much easier and less time consuming, a lot of people are going to stay frustrated with their cameras and pass on the upgrades. For social media sharing and iPad viewing almost any camera today is good enough.

Home printing is a nightmare for a lot of photographers, and  making large prints is the major reason to have anything over 16MP. All the post processing, calibration, printer profiling etc. is a whole different skill set, very frustrating and time consuming for most.

People are learning that even cameras from last generations,  far exceed their abilities to exploit them fully.
