Speaking of big things getting cheaper, this interview with Canon's Chief Executive points to a big push for more, and cheaper, full-frame DSLRs. This seems inevitable, but I hope they'd hurry the hell up. $1900 sounds "cheap" for a 6D, but I look forward to the day I can tell my students the can get something equivalent for $500.
There is a significant difference between full-frame and APS-C images. I begin my Beginning Photography classes with B&W 35mm film, and then move into digital. The students love the relative ease, and familiarity, of a digital camera. But they can also appreciate the difference between the flatness of an APS-C (or smaller) sensor and a 35mm negative. It's easy to forget that digital photography is still an infant.
