Re: APSC vs FF

If you think full frame is overkill, why do you use APS-C?  That is also far more than most people need... You could buy a Pentax Q7, interchangeable lens and much smaller.  1/1.7" sensor is plenty for most, fine for ISO 3200 web sized images.

You see my point?  Every sensor bigger than the one you use is overkill and everyone smaller too small.

Full frame has other advantages, better selection of wide angle lenses, more flexibility, more resolution, etc.

Obviously lenses are important, and the A7 has only a couple AF lenses, but more coming quickly and if you like manual focus the A7/r works better with any of the old SLR cameras than any other current camera.
