>I mentioned that my 90 was the first piece of electronic gadgetry that I haven't longed to update after a year of ownership!

Same here, I'm still happy with my D700 after two years, and I even tried out the D3s briefly. But I still think that we are in the stone age of digital photography and in 10-15 years we'll be laughing at cameras of the year 2010. Here are just a few improvements I envision:

- Video and still merge: Pressing the shutter release just records what frame you thought you wanted at the time of shooting. The camera will record a few seconds before and after, and you can select a different frame in post processing. No more notion of 5fps or 9fps. The camera will only shoot video, 60 frames per second, with same quality as stills.

- The mechanical aperture blades will be replaced with electronic ones, similar to LCD, which can shade the light path in microseconds. The camera will cycle though all apertures during the shot and record one frame for each, without us even noticing. Later in post, one can select the desired DOF.

- The image sensor will be 3D, having multiple layers (like the Foveon, but much more). So there is not just one sensor plane. The camera will record all planes separately, and one can later adjust the focus in post, within limits (i.e. if you missed the focus slightly).

I'll stop here. These are just things one can easily think of now. The actual camera of the future will have capabilities way beyond of what we can imagine now.
