You say that like it's a bad thing.

One stop lower is bad in my book.

Why? On what grounds is it bad in your book?

Before you answer, please read this closing quote from Great Bustard's post that started this thread:

In other words, simply because 35-100mm f/2.8 on mFT is equivalent to 70-200mm f/5.6 on FF, it doesn't make one "better than" the other.  But it may well have a great deal with why one chooses one system over the other, or, in fact, why so many seem to enjoy both.

Did you bother to read the first post in this thread? Are you aware that the conclusions contained in it are in direct disagreement with you 'book'?
