Well it appears the MCSA SQL Server 2012 certification will have a longer lifespan since Microsoft is not going to release new exams for SQL Server 2014. Why didn't they just name it SQL Server 2012 R2?

Reference:
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/sql-certification.aspx

•The MCSA: SQL Server 2012 credential and associated exams (461/462/463) will remain in market without any alterations. No MCSA: SQL Server 2014 credential will be offered.

•In March 2014, the MCSE: Data Platform (464/465) and MCSE: Business Intelligence (466/467) exams will be appropriately updated with SQL Server 2014 topics. The exam numbers will remain the same.

are there so less changes? No need to learn new features because there aren't many?

Because the R2 naming was incredibly unpopular in SQL 2008 and the marketing team learnt better.

There's quite a lot of new features.
