Re: Are Full Frame SLRs Obsolete?

Went today to Frys to kill some time while waiting for a physical inspector to finish inspecting the house.

Started looking at the cameras and compare them side by side. Looked at Nikon and Canon mostly for the fit in my hand. Looked at some POS cameras too.

Even though I really like my own D800 fit better than 5D3 I like most other Canon cameras to fit better than Nikon. But even though I could manage SL1 for example all those cameras are way to small for my small to average hand.

My conclusion is that FF cameras are not going anywhere soon but the weight of the cameras and lenses will be reduced by using advanced plastics and even lighter metals.
Size not so much.
