By your comment about the 7D, you make it all about the sensor. I'm pointing out that there's a lot more to it than that, such as speed, buffersize, customization options, build quality, etc.

It really as simple as that.

I believe he was referring to the camera as a whole. The original question was how could a cropped camera be worth more than a FF one. The answer infers that it's not all about the sensor.

What other significant differences are there?

And in your view the 1.6x crop 7D must be worth more still?!?

A crop camera can only come close to the abilities of a full frame camera when you are already using the longest lens available. For all other cases the FF camera has the advantage.

So how can it be worth more?
