Obviously an overstatement...

>and how we users ahould not cling to outdated tech because of
>our "need" for the semi-pro appearance.

This I somewhat agree with.

>Does anyone agree that this new model suddenly makes all our
>"old" cameras take bad images?

Of course not. But it DOES raise the bar rather significantly at a very attractive price. Twice the megapixels, and YES that does matter. Better ISO performance. Better color depth, better AF system. Dual card slots, video capability (if desired), A U1, U2 quick preference setup feature, etc. There's a LOT to like about the new camera, and it's incredibly competent. Doesn't make the D300 suddenly take bad photos, but offers a LOT of gain for not a lot of money relatively speaking. I am flabbergasted that I can get nearly D3s level ISO performance, with twice the megapixels, for 1/2 the cost of used. THat is why I spent my money on it.
