Thanks for the reply, I don't think failing photosites would be too much of an issue, I mean we are only adding a small bit to an already small sensor. I mean then what do you do about FF sensors?

They get bad yields for FF sensors: they are hard to manufacture.

If the cheapest FF sensors now cost below a thousand, then that is a recent development (we don't know the price of the sensor component itself, of course). Until recently it was 2000+ for a basic FF camera, when an otherwise higher-specified APS body could be had for something like half of that.

Larger sensors give problems in manufacturing, and there's no way around it. And even with a perfect yield the larger area will lead to problems.
