According to you:
The FE lenses average $875 in price and that may go up with the next lens.
The 70-200mm FE lens is LARGER than athe Canon FULL FRAME version in every dimension.
There are no new APS lenses announced at this time, but Sony said they are work on more FULL FRAME lenses.

According to you, Nikon must be targeting fools with $1300 APSc lens (17-55/2.8)

Nikon makes cameras that focus correctly.   If you watch the Super Bowl you saw hundreds of Nikon cameras and not a single Sony mirrorless, because Sony is that bad. Sony has dropped to the 5th best mirrorless focusing camera behind Fuji, Nikon, Panasonic and Olympus.

, and m43 manufactureres with $1200-1600 lenses for the tiny format.

Who shoots 4x3 anymore? Sure their sensors are as good as the Sony APS-C if you crop to 4x3, but I never do.

I am glad that Sony would be focusing more on FF lenses.

Almost everyone who bought a $400 APS body is NOT happy about lenses costing $800-$1000. The majority don't want to manually focus and can buy a better Nikon with better lenses for less.

Being smarter also entails understanding...
That a mirrorless format has already has its advantages (I don't think pros were shooting with a D3200 either).
And it would be dumb to spend more on bodies than on lenses.

Just a quick lesson on what being smarter entails. Now, I did leave out the point being discussed that tou "skipped"...

Does it take a dumb person to buy an APSc, much less a smaller format, lens that costs )1k or more? Or, would it be dumb to assume such position?
