why do we still not have affordable full frame??
Sep 5, 2010

it doesnt make any sense to me... 1000D was selling for 499 USD brand new for body only, if I was to make a rough guess, the sensor would contribute to 30% the cost, so lets say we pay 150 USD for it, and rest goes to all other parts of the body.

FF sensor is around 2.5 times the size of canon APS-C, so it should, in theory cost 2.5 times to produce. if made into a camera, it should increase its price by 225usd, assuming everything else stays equal.

so the question is, why doesnt it exist??

when you look around, every other electronic product had gone up in size and gone down in price, 5 years ago a 17 inch LCD was around 500 NZD, and I paid 1500 NZD (1000USD) for my dell 2405 2 4inch LCD, today 24inch cost only 1/4 that.
