I think it's quite unfair if you handicap one side by taking away all of its advantages, or at least it's raison d'être. If a user were not interested in the size and weight savings, then there's no reason to switch from APS-C either, and that format can be had even cheaper.

If you just want to point out that FF can be had for a lot less than in the past, and can be a great value then yes, of course. There has not been a better time to buy FF. And it will probably only get even better in the future.

indeed. I bought into m4/3 because I wanted something different. Don't know why, but I did not like the idea of lugging big and heavy things with me all day. If Olympus made a FF camera for a nice price in a compact body with compact lenses than maybe. I like Olympus as a brand, don't know why but I was always attracted to Olympus. Don't think I will buy another brand unless Olympus stops.

FF has some advantages but for a hobby, no way.
