Re: Are APS-C SLRs Obsolete?

APS-C does have a larger selection of lenses than 35mm

in shier numbers maybe yes - simply because the APS-C lenses don't fit the 35 mm format. From an application view there is IMHO no question that your get at least as much flexibility for real world applications and you can always crop your FF image as long as the pixel count is high enough for the end result and viewing distance - nikon did a great job with the D800E and Sony continues with the A7R. No need for cropping at the beginning - I think too that the APS-C format will die sooner or later completely and be consumed by SmartPhone cameras and smaller sensor formats being much cheaper to be manufactured.
