While I appreciate your comments, I think it is fair to challenge the notion that APS-C is somewhat automatically better for beginners. If you want to get the most bang for your buck it might as well argue for 5N or A5000.

There are different fads when it comes to digital cameras, of the top of my head:

- Less megapixels is better

- More megapixels is better

- Optical zoom is a necessity

- Primes are always superior

- in camera flash is a necessity

- Video is necessity

- Somehow that having the video feature on a DSLR makes it worse (!)

- smaller sensor is an advantage as you get more depth of field

etc. etc.

Some things though are generally better: like cheaper, smaller, larger sensor, better lens compatibility, more features, image stabilization and so on.
