Do we really need a FF Camera?

The Full Frame Debate by Tom Hogan

"Sony has four (RX1, A99, A7, and A7r). Also a terrible lineup, as you're not going to upgrade from one of those to another easily, except maybe the A7 to A7r, but then why didn't you buy the A7r in the first place?"

Seven Myths About The Need for Full Frame Camera Bodies

1. The Low Light Argument

2. The Shallower Depth of Field Argument

3. The Lens Flexibility Argument

4. The Sharpness Argument

5. The Winder Angles Argument

6. The Better Build Quality Argument

7. The Full-Frame Cameras Look Cooler Argument

Drooling over the newest full-frame digital cameras? You might not need one after all.

"Despite what we said about a full-frame sensor’s potential to capture great images, you don’t need a full-frame camera to create beautiful images. The regular consumer will do just fine with the cropped sensor in an interchangeable lens camera for general photography."
