In addition I personally believe that 24mp was the cornerstone of the market. Just like nothing important happened in the film market in the 1990's nothing important has happened in the DSLR market since 2013 when Pentax started to use the 24mp APS-C sensor.

The growth in MP's has stopped. Now camera manufacturers try to make improvements by introducing pixel shift, etc.

In the computer world a similar thing took place some years ago. Some 20 years ago you had to buy a new computer every three years. Personally I have used my present computer for some 7 years and it still works allright. A new computer will work faster, not because it has more RAM memory, but because it works more effeciently with it.

Spot on!! The "processing" power has not improved much in last 10 years--- the key improvement is that newer CPU's use less energy (watts) and in turn dissipate less energy (heat).

Watt? Excuse the pun 😂 The difference is gigantic, compare a 10 year old top rank desktop CPU with one from today. Frequency and Moore's law levelled off relativeky speaking so then the development of multi-cores, threads, bus speeds and more were brought in.

Try post processing a modern big file on a 10 year old PC... No thank you! Especially heavy post processing.
