But it's not equal to FF. FF lenses are actually cheaper for the same performance, because they've been building them for many years. M43ds vendors are raking in the money because people think F2.8 on M43rd is equal to F2.8 on FF, and they're getting a good deal. They're not.

clueless. f2.8 is f2.8 on either or. one has more DOF and one has less based on sensor size. but as an aperture, f2.8 is still the same thing.

I'm puzzled and unfortunately clueless at what you are saying.

Are you saying f/2.8 is equivalent to f/2.8 no matter if it's a lens on FF DSLR or MFT?   That they are the same thing?

Thanks for clarifying.
