Less features for more money camera gear future? Let's talk about it.

Or will we get cheap functional cameras but have to spend a lot on lenses? It’s hard to say because both cases are happening right now. Features like dual card slots started being dropped from cameras from the Nikon D7500 onward. The entry mirrorless didn’t include that feature either for prices like what the Nikon D600 was when it came out, so where is that money going? Whether features like that will be added back into prosumer mid-range cameras is up for debate. With full-frame mirrorless mounts, lenses have generally increased in price with ones like the Canon RF 85mm f1.2 have a MSRP of $2700! I suspect that fewer and fewer cameras will have a good range of features, but they will be priced lower in the way that laser and ink jet printers sell for low prices but the ink and toner are expensive. In that sense the lenses will continue to increase in price and companies will do things like remove the center pin from the hotshoe to limit the use of 3rd party flash.
