Re: so... increase body to decrease lens cost - i.e. peeing against the wind, right?

2 mounts for still cameras, A and E. How many does Canon have?

This whole concept is for fixed lens cameras, even according to their own propositions.

APS-C lenses are useless on FF, and FF lenses don't fit well with APS-C in terms of prices, sizes, weights and often focal lengths...

You can talk long or short, the claim about more than 2 mounts for still ILC's remains false, there are 2 mounts, A and E.

For example, the new 70-200 FE fits APS-C bodies fine and was actually quite welcome there too.

The fact that APS-C lenses are much less useful on FF bodies, is a different discussion and less relevant to the actual mounts.

But if you're here to defend hyperbole, be my guest.
