2012 and the big action, this year, is in the full frame cameras. Nikon released the D800 and the D4, Canon has released their 5Dmk3 and the 1Dx, Sony is poised to release the Alpha 99. The talk of the town is that Nikon will be coming out with a full frame the D600 at around $1,500 US and Canon will have to follow suit.
Obviously, full frame cameras must be better. If not, why is all the buzz and all the press promoting all these cameras that start around $3,000 and top at $6,500? People say:
Bigger pixels, less noise…
Some of it can be true, but it's not always the case.
