Like someone else said, you can also think of it as FF having to come down in price in order to compete with prosumer APS-C, since APS sensors were/are getting so good.

Sorry, but D800 is still up there with much higher resolution and highest ranking on dxomark. Plus there was D4 with better lowlight performance (per pixel level) than APSC.

There was no need for FF to come down on prices because APSC were better (they were still worse). D800/D4 were still better than 16 MP APSC, just as D700/5D Mark II were better than K20D/D300 5 years ago. Nothing really changed.

I don't think your claim is true.

It's just Nikon really sticking to Canon (and Sony) with aggressively priced products, but Pentax might get squeezed the most if they don't counter this in the next 12 months.
