Re: Are APS-C SLRs Obsolete?

I think SonyForNow meant high ISO, or low noise at high ISO?  I can see an argument here, if the m43 cameras quality is up to aps-c then there is less of a motivation to go for APS-C and the market could polarize towards high image quality 35mm vs good image quality in a compact frame m43.  This will probably happen if 35mm sensor prices drop far enough, but that may be a while.  APS-C does have a larger selection of lenses than 35mm but it's not a huge advantage at this point....I do think it's a huge advantage over m43 though.

People will eventually buy FF for best image quality, low ISO, and its lens & camera selection. The APS-C film format died a quiet death and was unnecessarily resurrected to digital for price reasons. The smaller sensors in point & shoots moved to cell phones. Micro 4/3rds provides aps-c image quality with smaller lenses and camera bodies.

Low iso? The lens selection for aps-c is far greater than FF. Interesting....aps-c isnt as good as FF....but m43 matches aps-c? Anything else?
