Re: Those are APS compacts with slow lenses

Wonderfull thread to learn from you all. Thanks.

I think de APS-C sensor has given me great lens opportunities (with all the adapter and legacy options)

The famous compact zooms such as the Sony HX-300 (another thing alltogether I know) are popular mostly because of their REACH, due only to its small sensor size.

So for all of us who are wanting reach as a priority, a smaller sensor is the easiest way to obtain that.

A 200 mm lens is ALWAYS a 200mm lens, but with a smaller sensor the reach can be increased tremendously.

At this point in time (april 2013), our NEX cameras with its APS-C sensor seem to be an optimum in the compromise between reach and IQ. If this remains so, the future will show.
