I agree to separating A mount from E mount forum. I do not agree to splitting E mount forum into APSC and FF.

I like my NEX camera and plan to use both NEX and A7, sharing lenses across both cameras regardless lens type (APSC/FF) for economy and flexibility. I am sure there are many other users who may want to keep their NEX like me. Splitting the Forum into APSC and FF will mean we will have to search in two forums instead of a single E mount forum.

Paul, If and when you go A7, the expectations are you will want to avoid the E crop if possible with the eventual Alpha lenses that Sony should develop. This current stage is almost like the early NEX stage with a paucity of lenses. Henry seems to have an idea whereby posts with dual content can be directed to a dual forum. This would seem to avoid your and others' problems with 2 or 3 forums. It might require a little homework by DPR, but I'm sure they're up to it. Even if we don't go FF, it's not as if we're out of the photography equipment market.

Just as there already exists an "Open Talk Forum," this new dual forum could be called the "Sony Open Talk Forum" for interchange of ideas and discussions about ALL Sony cameras!

What do think, Don?

Steve, If you really want my opinion, I think three forums, that is, a FF, a NEX, and the third a dual or Open Talk, will dilute the posters. Two separate should suffice, and maintain open and lively separate FF & NEX talk. But that reflects my limited technical insight. If DPR saw fit, sure, put up a third Open Talk to discuss common issues. But it seems we have to convince DPR to at least go for two. You're more experienced than me. Have you ever seen DPR step in and make such a change? Don

Can't say that I have, Don. Just for clarification, there are currently I believe 3 Sony-based forums so that would mean either 4 or 5, depending on how you divide it.
