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

Listening, and I recall the 4:3 crowd saying that 5 years ago ... which one is going away?

Yes, when 4/3 was first introduced, many people were declaring it to be the new universal standard for DSLR photography, and that FF would be dead in a matter of years. Jump to 2012 and we see several new FF bodies being introduced at Photokina (Canon 6D, Sony A99, Nikon D600, Sony RX1, Leica M and M-E), but no new 4/3 bodies. Canon and Nikon now each have several FF bodies in the market. Clearly, the old predictions of FF's demise were way off the mark, and so too are any new predictions of FF's demise.
