This is silly, the reason why so many failed in the early digital was was due to cost of sensor size, FF sensors are now much cheaper and have been fitted in to much smaller bodies, APS-C has no real future or one worth investing in from those that make FF systems.

Sony failing to match Canon or Nikon in the FF DSLR market is hardly a surprise but I think they've found their feet with the A7/R system.

Interesting point, but invalidated if you look at actual data. I can buy a Nikon D3100 with a kit lens for $400. Please show me a full frame sensor that's even close to that price point.

Yeah, APS-C is still a lot cheaper. When FF sensors approach the same price, things will get interesting. I wonder if Sony sees this coming in a few years?
