Re: APS-C the loser
In reply to kelly15, Sep 22, 2012

My opinion is that APS-C will be struggling in the long run, not FF. FF will always be the biggest for those that like it. And m43rds / NEX will increasingly have 99.99999% of the quality of FF for common sense people like me and so will increasingly capture the rest of the market. APS-C DSLRs, on the other hand, are neither fish nor fowl and so at some point will start to seriously lose market share, maybe when PDAF becomes the norm for mirrorless.

There is no reason at all, unless you are a pro, and a very spacialized pro.
The quality of m43 is more than what is really needed for any kind of use.
Which is the reason to click at 12800 ISO?
Which is the reason to enlarge the screen to 1:1?

Look at the pictures you may take with the 45 and 75 oly, with the 25, 7/14 pana and so and compare them with the pictures you took at the film era.
No comparison.

Of ourse if you decide to walk heavy and bulky, to spend more money for nothing ( or so), you can do that, but you loose the possibility to have you camera set always with you with a quality level which is a dream.

Listen to me, in 3/4 years FF will disappear or limited to studio professional work only.
