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?

They made the rx1, an extremely niche` camera with a fixed prime lens for $3000.  A very strange move for sony, who likes to mass produce things.

For every advance in an aps-c image sensor, a 35mm image sensor will still be better.  The a99 lags behind the 35mm norm because it loses light going through that ridiculous see through mirror.
