Re: Crop sensors are certainly obsolete

Focal length limited applications still benefit from the greater pixel density of APS-C. Example: bird photography. Large-field sports photography. I can get some pretty decent photos with an APS-C DSLR (60D) and 400mm f/5.6L. Would I like more focal length? Does the sun rise in the East? Realistically, those who don't have the ginormous 10,000.00+ lenses are likely better off with 400mm f/5.6L (or 100-400) on an APS-C camera, not a FF camera.

Also, my compacts are  Sigma DP2M and DP3M APS-C Foveon sensor cameras. Great landscape cameras, fabulous detail and color subtlety.
