I never denied that good lenses matter as well. In fact somewhere on here when I was hyping up the D90 over the D200, I made a remark like "put some good glass on it and holy crap!" Or something to that effect.
Sorry if it makes you angry (I don't understand why anyone would get angry at someone elses opinions), but this is the way things move. I don't recall anyone ever saying that older DSLR's were "pieces of trash", I must have missed that post. It's just in the world of electronics, time moves much faster than in the old days and the newer products and the features that you mentioned making things easier is exactly the point! The less time I have to spend post possessing, the more time I can spend shooting. The better AF system means I can shoot more pictures and have more keepers. With Active D-Lighting having to spend a little less time fixing dynamic range in post and when I have a few hundred pictures to do, this time adds up. Same is true with color adjustments etc.
"sure, high iso abilities makes life easier, all new improvements affect mostly the user interface and ability to produce better pictures straight from the camera and to take pictures with more Mpx or with higher iso, which helps of course."
sums up what me and a few others have been saying and these are the reasons we are getting at.
I guess like so many other things in digital photography it comes down to a matter of personal preference. If you have the extra time to spend perfecting this and fixing that, then by all means save some money and get one of the older (and still very good) DSLR's and use that time you have.
