DX was bad and temporally crotch to start with anyway. Will not be missed.
Cameras were neither really small, nor really cheap, same for glass.
What the hell does "temporally crotch" mean exactly? "DX was bad"? What in the world is bad about it? I've seen you make some foolish statements on this forum before but these top them all.
same as APS film, it was done to save costs for manufacturers while keeping the prices same for consumers. It didn't catched up in film, because customers had already choice. With digital it was done to overcome bad yield in sensors so first pro digital cameras had smaller sensors and enjoyed higher price. Customers had no choice, didnt know better either, they had to buy it. In 2009 Sony released $2000 full frame digital camera, loled at everybody. Now many people started to scratching their heads and asking questions. Also even those hard core gadget buyers started to slowly "notbuying" new and "oh so way better toy" cameras, slowing down the market. Followed logically by cheaper and better fullframe Canikons, ending up in D600 and even full frame mirrorless and compacts, maybe more rangefinders soon.
crotch noun (change, departure, branching out, deviance), other meanings
DX is and was bad. There is nothing what smaller sensor gives you, other then lower image quality. It is very beneficial for companies thought. Want proof? Look at where their profits are.
If there would be f2 DX zooms, loads of small fast DX primes, and bigger price difference it might have been different, i would talk differently. Price difference is only inflated and only because companies get away with it.
1) don't tell me that 5 to 12Mpixels (difference in pixel density) makes any difference for your craft, i heard it at lot of workshops and always proved everybody wrong in the room (print good 3Mpix photo at 80x60cm canvas, you will understand).
2) don't tell me that you would rather buy DX rangefinder then FX one, price being the same
That was little history trip
