  • FF is more expensive on average. Expense is dictated by the change in your cash and/or liability balances after a purchase. It doesn't matter what you get, it matters what it cost. It's impossible ...
  • The ability to take good photos is not gear dependent. A competent photographer does not need new gear or top features. Their knowledge, planning, and execution will wash out any technical ...
  • But they must justify higher prices through what they offer. This is where you'll get lenses with fast af, or edge to edge sharpness, or light weight, or smooth turning rings, or rugged build ...
  • Yes, that's better. I'm not sure what the issue is. Competition drives faster adoption of what consumers want, and with greater efficiencies. They have to compete on appropriate mixes of prices ...
  • If they revealed lens plans, they could then agree on who produces what. And if they didn't compete with similar FLs, they wouldn't have to compete as much on quality or features at those FLs. You ...
  • Replied in B&H is great !
    yeah, worst part of this thread is all the bending over backwards to applaud the least logical, least scientific, and least reasoned sort of organizational basis mankind engages in.
  • Replied in B&H SUCKS
    No, you just think breaking your arm patting yourself on the back warrants a post
  • It's difficult to say, particularly as the volume is so much lower. The fixed cost allocation and labor cost per unit time dedicated to each lens may vary significantly between consumer crop and ...
  • we could reference BCN for Japan specific percentages of sales, then use CIPA for hard numbers for the region, then try to back in to this overall percentage split globally, along with the ...
  • While poking around the CIPA charts again, I forgot that they do specific lens data. For 2017, crop (anything other than 35mm format) was 72.7% of units and 45.8% of cash value. Using the same ...
  • in what universe is every job opportunity allowed an excess amount of planning time? or where a photographer can be expected to make the enormous capital outlay to purchase every piece of gear ...
  • Can you do anything at the time of capture, i.e., lens, sensor resolution, settings, or lighting to maximize sharpness? And get the gold mirror polished? It's a really soft metal, shouldn't be too ...
  • Hopefully not, now that you've begged for it.
  • My favorite is an aluminum print on a float
  • I don't care for frames in general. Even rather pricey ones come across as such insubstantial things. They're like trim molding to me, not really pleasing, just needed to hide or distract from ...
  • that's not tracking year over year changes, only mirror vs non. The entire industry has acknowledged that camera sales have been in serious decline since the peak. They are hoping we have now ...
  • Well, cost is the reason, the average pro also makes less than the national average wage. Bodies and lenses tend cheaper for crop, plus they can take ff lenses if desired. The output is generally ...
  • Overall, the ratio is probably no less than 7:1. If Canon, Sony, and Nikon do all have 16% of sales as full frame, and they make up 87% of the market, then that's 13.92% full frame if no one else ...
  • This whole thread is basically about how unimportant such things are to overall profitability. Decidedly non-pro camera sales is exactly where most of the money comes from. There's only 50k ...
  • It is, for the whole market. There are brands that sell zero ff cameras. Also, with the popularity of the Canon apsc/rebel lines compared to Nikon, it is hard to say that the same 16% proportion ...
