Do you really need a full frame camera? My answer would be “probably not.” The camera makers want you to buy one probably because their gross product margins are about the same no matter which DSLR you buy, so they want you to buy the most expensive one you can afford. Somewhere along the way, people got it into their heads that full frame was so much better than anything else, that any time a company mentions that they’re coming out with another full frame camera, especially an “affordable” one, the entire Internet gushes with lust over the newcomer.
