I think we are all getting spoiled.
Just think this time last year high DR, hi resolution, wide color depth, etc was barely available at any price and with DSLR it was $8000 for the only camera with 13 stops of DR, which just happened to have 24mpx.
Now, just a year later few would want to "settle' for such a camera that did not have more then 14 stops of DR and would feel compromised if handed one to shoot. Currently, there is nothing in any camera brand's line that takes better, quieter, better color images for less than $20,000 and that competition is only at 1600 ISO and lower. Above that, the D600 and D800 leave 'em in a trail of "dust".
The D600 thumps some pretty pricey digital backs when the light calls for ISO 1600+. Even the D800 is a speed demon compared to the $50k MF cameras.

My only minor regret was not getting the D800e but at the time, they were impossible to find.

Almost an embarrassment of riches....

Now if only top glass was a cheap as top cameras..... If glass progress as fast and prices dropped as fast as the last 4 years have seen in bodies, we would be awash in f/0.9 VR7 300mm 800gram lenses for $59.95 for when we wanted to shoot hand held at 1/6th and have perfect stabilization.
