APS-C does not give the same IQ as APS-H
APS-H has more reach than ff
... but by that logic, APS-H does not give the same IQ as FF, no?
APS-H is the compromise solution that has no major weakness
Even the kids know that bigger is better .
So, from a marketing perspective, APS-H has one really major flaw: it's smaller than FF.
And if your camera has a smaller thingy than the competition, you can't charge same/more than the competition.
It's that simple.
Nikon switched from DX to FX in their pro Dx line because Canon was winning with a bigger thingy in their cameras.
And Canon in turn switched from APS-H to FF in the 1-series because now Nikon had a bigger thingy.
So, despite all the cheerleading, APS-H is out forever. Get over it .
