the reason i bring it up is that, when comparing the m43 vs. nex, even though dof and iso differences are only about a stop, the two systems are the same price, so choosing nex for that extra stop still makes sense. but ff systems are WAY more expensive, so that extra stop and a half of dof and iso doesn't seem to have proportionate value.

1 1/3rd stop for APS-C, 5 stops for FF.

DoF is very different too. As is FOV for legacy glass.

Aside from being a lot more expensive, FF gear is also bulky = heavy.

An FF Nex takes the bulk out of the camera, especially the metal frame bodies. Adapters weigh very little.
