Re: Is FF sensors going to slowly phase out?

The main obstacles to having a FF 'NEX' will be price & the technical aspects of obtaining fast & accurate focus.

Sony have shown with the FF A99 that they cannot produce a competitive FF camera. The Canon 6D & Nikon D600 are just as good if not better than the A99 & are significantly lower in price than the Sony camera.

There are few , if any , FF lenses that can focus reliably on mirrorless cameras & until this becomes possible a FF 'NEX' will always be a non starter.

I am reluctant to conclude this as I have always supported the idea of having a more compact FF format but technology needs to improve before this can become a reality.
