The thread (Death of Full Frame ) hit the 149-response wall just as I felt the obligation to respond to some interesting views, such as this gem from Mike CH:

Could you do me a favor? Could you measure the length of the body with that lens attached and report back with the total length?

And what exactly do you wish to accomplish with it? Trying to convince me that I could carry the same amount of gear in my sling bag with a FF body and lenses to match?

I'm not going to try to convince you of anything. I'm genuinely curious to see how much smaller it is than my setup.

Trying to convince me with the arguments you make will be impossible. So, don't even bring it up. Now, here's to your curiosity:

You did notice, didn't you, that the parties trying to do the convincing here are the small form factor proponents? As in the title of the thread?

Do you act this way because the small-is-beautiful argument isn't winning any points with people who don't like small?

Wait and see...

Dear Mike,

Your response is rather amusing for the very fact that it questions my ability to "notice" something when it is you who is taking presented facts (in this case, measurements as I asked by the person responded to) and deflecting from it.

I was, as is absolutely clear from the quote above, solely responding to your twice saying that there is no sense in trying to convince you since there is no argument that can convince you - in response to a query for information!

I was also pointing out, that in regard to convincing - which you went on about twice - the OP actually started this thread in attempt to convince people that the death of FF was imminent.

So if pointing out that a) you didn't quite know what you yourself was writing and b) that you had mistaken who was trying to convince whom is a gem, why then I can only say: thank you very much, glad to be of service!

Oh, and in regard to the size of your equipment: No, I was not trying to divert the discussion. I simply have absolutely NO INTEREST in the size of YOUR equipment. That is the reason why I didn't bother with that part. You are the one obsessing about size.

Regards, Mike
