Best use of Total Light Equivalence calculations
In reply to coroander, Jun 8, 2012

The best use of Total Light Equivalence calculations is, IMHO, to ameliorate Buyer's Remorse, i.e. the insecurities of those who bought M4/3 systems.

If your FF, APS-C, or M4/3 systems make good enough pictures for your purposes, then your talent/ambition is not pushing the hardware limits. Which is totally OK, but no need to compare like measurbators.

But if you are insecure about your purchase because of a cognitive dissonance stemming from the conflict between the ideas that 1) you bought the best camera for your needs and 2) that there is always a newer, better camera for your needs.

It happens in consumerist societies and markets for all kinds of products, not just cameras. I suggest ignoring the issue and improving your technique, talent, ambitions, and results until you get fed up with the real limits of the camera. Then look for a better one.
