Re: Is Full-Frame simply an expensive phase for many photographers?

I want both FF and APS-C. The reason is a difference in capabilities. An APS-C camera affords more "reach" with a given lens, while a 35MM body provides a wider field of view that no APS-C camera can ever hope to deliver without resorting to heavily-distorted lenses, plus if a thin depth of field is desired, at a given field of view (note I didn't say focal length) the FF sensor is preferable.

It's a matter of picking the right tool for the job. Both crop and FF cameras are tradeoffs, and ideal for different purposes.
