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...
it would be dumb to spend more on bodies than on lenses.

So all those people who bought an A7R and old legacy lenses are "Dumb" now. I'll let them you you said so.

Does it take a dumb person to buy an APSc...

It is dumb for a person on a budget to buy an inexpensive APS body, but then find all the new lenses cost over $750. Sony doesn't have much for them and so they are going to Canon and Nikon which is why mirrorless sales fell so much and DSLR sales increased.

19% market share for mirrorless over jan-dec 2013, just like in 2012.  Shipment of mirrorless units fell by just 1.7% point more than DSLR year over year, on the other hand DSLR shipment value felll by 8.6% point more than mirrorless year over year. December shows mirrorless units fell by 0.7% compared to the same month in 2012, vs a 13.8% drop for DSLR's. Mirrorless value of shipments in december went up by 22.2% compared to 2012, DSLR's value went up by 11.8%.

But yeah, show us some non relevant local sales increase from your favorite retailer.
