APS-C e-mount lens future. Thoughts?
11 months ago

I've been thinking about what the future might be for existing APS-C e-mount lenses. I was disappointed with the low resolution compatibility for these lenses with the A7/A7R and am curious if we might see higher cropped resolution with future Sony full frame cameras. Some of these APS-C lenses are quite good and I'm hopeful that if I buy another camera body in a year or two that I'll be able to put some of them to good use at a reasonable resolution since I frequently print large images and like the crop ability with the NEX-7. I don't really understand the technical aspects of why going to a 24mp full frame sensor pushes cropped mode down to 10mp or 36 down to 16. Is this by design from Sony or will technology improve to the point that we'll see reasonable resolution for our favorite lenses?

Thoughts?
