Here is my take:

1206 parts are becoming harder to find and more expensive that 0805's due to
(in my understanding) the amount of expensive and rare materials used to
form the end contacts.  The amounts in an 0805 are a fraction of what is
used in a 1206.

I am looking to the future when 0805's might go the way of the 1206's for
the same reason, and all my new designs are to use 0603 as standard.
Special cases (odd values, large caps, etc.) would then be the exception.

Hi All
Today is the fist time for a surface mount board.
Which is the most common footprint used for resisters 
603,805,1206 ?
The chip I am using uses a SOIC-8 footprint
