I think the decision depends on your own finances and justifications. I agree that the camera is a computer by following computer industry in general. Every 3-5 years, new technology today gets to be an old technology. Take a look at Apple computer today, the latest Retina display (2880 x 1800 res) has 2 times as much screen resolutions as a regular version. The normal acceptable size of print-out today might be too small in a near future. This has been attested in the history of imaging industry.
Personally as an imaging professional (I do surface imaging design. Photography is one of my image making methods, though I do some commercial photography), I do not believe the concept of owing devices including the cameras and computer systems, but loaning them. When the time comes and if I can, I sell old technologies and replace the newer ones to keep up to be current.
