End of 2012 bringing about the end of DX?

I'm curious to see if the end of 2012 is bringing about the end of the cropped sensor for the enthusiast/pro models of cameras. With the 6D and D600 on the market now, there really isn't a compelling reason to buy a 7D orD300/Dwhatever in crop factor, unless a blazing frame rate is needed.

I can see the Rebel line from Canon, and the D3000/D5000 lines from Nikon continuing on, but that is all.

What other opinions are out there?

The D600 plus the Nikon 24-85 lens can be had right now for under 2K.

I'd hope not. I personally prefer the smaller sensor size for some reason.

If you are using the crop sensor to your advantage, I could see that. (Getting more bang for your buck at the telephoto end) Other than that, clean images are much easier to get from a larger sensor.

Indeed, I just prefer the more reach aspect. I typically keep my ISO under 800 anyway so noise isn't a huge deal with modern APS-c cameras nowadays. I won't argue with the cleaner images from a FF though. Insanely detailed.

I don't see it going away. Cheaper NEW lenses for the DX, cheaper cameras and enough people out there who will want them. The D7000 is an amazing camera and at the high end of the DX spectrum for Nikons. I also see the advantage of having at least one DX body when shooting telephoto. A 1.5 conversion factor (Nikon) makes a 200mm lens a 300mm lens and a 300mm lens a 450mm lens. You're getting more reach for the same price.

You can pick up DX format Nikon for a decent price and then a 70-210 off eBay for next to nothing and be good to go out to 305mm. Your average consumer (not pro-sumer, amateur or pro) won't want to pay upwards of $2000 for a camera and lens. I wrote a paper on Nikon DSLRs including their hierarchy. Nikon (and Canon) realize the need for budget priced DSLRs.

I just picked up a D7K, and love it. If then annouced the end of DX, I would pick up 3 more D7K's and stash them away, I like it that much.

I also appreciate the ability of a FF camera to work with natural light, my preferred method of shooting.

Save for products, I try to shoot natural light only as well. It's like a dance.

I'll agree with APS-C sized sensors having their advantages. I'd love to go full frame but I also love burst shooting. My XTi may not be the biggest speed demon but if I set it up in JPEG mode and set my WB and everything else and need to get some bursts out of it it's burst speed is fast enough for me for the moment. With that said I'd love to start attending more OHL games and start photographing high speed stuff like indoor RC carpet racing or 3d helicopter stunting etc so a 7D or something of that nature with fast AF and fast burst rate makes sense to me. With that said I would love to get a FF camera as my next setup (I've been considering a used 5D classic) but I've heard the AF on the 5D classic sucks and a used 7D even though it's crop would be a great fast upgrade from my XTI as it runs the same crop factor. But yea getting that extra bang for your buck in telephoto lenses reall makes a crop body a great thing to have. if money were no object I'd grab a full frame for still shots (landscapes,portraits etc) and have a 7D or similar for sports or fast action but I don't exactly have that kind of cash

Falcon, get the 1DX. 18MP at 12FPS. That's 216MP/s. They're only what, $6800.
