I used to own an Olympus OM-2 35mm film camera and was happy as a clam with it (and with the tiny, sharp Zuiko lenses). I was planning on keeping it forever...until the digital age dawned. Since then I've let myself get caught up in the DSLR "trade-up frenzy", enjoying the improved resolution and other features with each upgrade (and enjoying the nice resale opportunites afforded in this eBay age). I am reasonably confident, however, that once I can justify a 20+ MP camera with truly low noise and good durability (like the 5DII), I will not feel compelled to trade up for many years to come. I'm curious how many amatuers like myself will also reach similar buying decisions, and if consequently the volume of sales might start to decline signiificantly for EXISTING amatuer DSLR owners--especially as the xxD models move into the 20+ MP range (as competition will force them to quicker than most might predict). Higher frame rates, better autofocus, improved dynamic range, etc. certainly will keep many trading up from the 5DII down the road, but we've clearly reached the point of diminishing returns on the BIG TWO: resolution and noise. I'll probably wait about a year to see where 5DII prices end up and buy my "last" digital body (well, maybe for a decade). Have any of you other posters on this forum from the xxxD or xxD worlds been "waiting" for the right "permanent" xD camera to show up before paying the big bucks?
