Speaking of all the sightings, when I go out, I almost always see Nikon shooters. I was at La Chua trail the other day and finally saw an obvious Canon shooter as they had a big whine lens, but clearly had no clue what to do with it as they were not taking photos of all the birds/gators, but rather just carrying it. Other than that, when I'm in my tyipcal spot (Cedar Key) the tourists and locals always seem to have Nikon or Sony. I can't really even remember last time I saw any Canon folk. Not that it actually matters at all, just thought about it when everyone brought it up.

LOL. I'll have to check out Instagram. Never been there. My kids talk about it all the time. Cameras are just like everything else. Always changing & updating. There will be tons of advancements in cameras, before I'm ready to replace my T4i.
I've had my iPhone almost 2 years now. So just started texting 2 years ago. I'll check out Instagram next.
I tend to keep things & use them for awhile. I'm not out to upgrade & replace everytime something comes out.
Used my XT for years.
My car is 22 years old & 317,000 miles.
I'll use my T4i for a few more years. I'm sure the 6D will be replaced & updated many times over by then.
Huge respect for keeping a vehicle that long. My jeep is 20 years old this year and about 211k miles. Still going. It's amazing not having a car payment. Goes towards so many other things.
This kind of goes hand in hand with cameras/lenses. You're right that the 6D will be replaced and updated. The next few years are actually going to be significant for dSLR, since not much has truly changed in the past 10 years (sure things have changed, but not a massive leap actually). Now there's a whole new market to fight against, sales going down, they have to do something to really keep it up. So I imagine they will finally release something they have sitting for a rainy day.
That said, there are reasons to upgrade from the T4i, even if quality isn't a big difference. I for one am ready to get a second camera strictly to have MFA built in. It's actually quite important to me these days. Also, some limited weather resistance. Those two features are really starting to get my attention after playing with different cameras and options. As much as I want better ISO performance, those three things together really are making me move towards a camera purchase soon. The beauty is, it's always great to have a backup camera!
