Re: Is FF sensors going to slowly phase out?

I think even if you put the price difference (and even APS sensors improvements) aside, the FF will always have an upper hand, especially in terms of depth of field and resolving power. The latter can have a limit for human eye, but the former won't ever.

Isn't it amazing how close in performance the APSC in NEX is compared to the FF sensor on A99? If you look at the scores from DXO, it's not very different maybe half to at most one stop of difference in ISO performance. Even if you look at test photos, including the tests done here at dpreview the difference is minimal. I guess a bigger performance jump from APSC to canikon's FF but not to sony's own flagship FF.

So is the FF going to slowly phase out? Does the FF NEX even makes sense at this point? At maybe 3-4x the price, you're only getting marginally better results. Unless the FF NEX is expected to out perform the A99 significantly?
