All APS-C does is crop.

For a given magnification at the sensor plane and a given aperture, DoF is ~ identical.

That's untrue, because FF allows to shoot closer to your subject with an equivalent angle of view.  To get the same FF angle of view with APS-C, you must move back from the subject, which ultimately leads to less shallow dof.

The smaller the sensor is, the less shallow the dof is.

All harsh, impolite and/or unreasonable replies will be simply ignored.
Measurebators are out of my world, photography is not about babbling behind a computer... but rather being out of your home, shoot and share photographs with other people. Shoot and Share...Thanks.
