Considering 10-22 mm, how long do you think Canon will support "S" lenses?

I've worked a bit for the semi-conductor industry and I can tell you that the FF sensors are probably 4X more expensive to manufacture than the APS-C. These sensors are allready expensive because of their large size too.

I'm betting that the APS-C sensors are here to stay. I also find that image quality is pretty darn good on my 4Ti.

I think Canon once made the claim that their FF sensors cost something like 20-100X as much as their crop sensors, which seems unlikely, but if that's even close to true it's remarkable.

Fwiw, I agree: just get the 10-22mm EF-S lens and don't look back. It's cheaper than getting a 6D and a 17-40mm L. By the time 1.6x crop sensors are eliminated (though it is weird how long the current generation of sensors has persisted, isn't it?!) it will be time for a new camera and the 6D equivalent will be the price of a t2i.

I own the 11-16mm f2.8 and love it, but the Canon seems to have advantages, too. Wider and less flare, maybe sightly better IQ.
