+1 on the "everyone that wants a DSLR has one" theme.
I imagine that the few other people I know with a DSLR, kit lens and nothing else, can't be the only ones out there. For those people, that combo is apparently enough. It starts costing some serious money to move out of the "kit lens" range. I loaned a relative a nice lens, and although the difference could be easily seen, the cost of the lens is seen as a major obstacle.
Significant photo quality upgrades seem to be lacking in new models (not that what is here now is bad). Non-techie people won't move to the next model for Wi-Fi features.
My smartphone takes some pretty darn good images for what it is. I tried the panorama feature, at close range, and it did what I needed it to do. Compared to the previous version, I can take panorama photos in potrait *and* landscape, and in either direction (can't do that in camera with my DSLR).
I can see pretty easily how smartphones are taking DSLR sales away from casual users.
