What one thing will motivate you to buy a new camera?

There are LOTS of reasons we buy new cameras, but since these polls only permit one answer, please select the single thing that will most motivate you to upgrade or to buy your next camera.

It might be interesting to see what the camera enthusiasts who use this website might want.

Naturally, if I haven't listed the thing you want next, then select "something else" and explain what you want in your reply.
