To be fair, you may not have actually understood the purpose of my challenge. It wasn't to create or show an image that couldn't have been duplicated EXACTLY but rather to show an image that couldn't be duplicated in general. So same aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focal length, and accessories if needed (lighting, for example). Not necessarily identical framing, composition, or location.

Sorry if I wasn't clear.

Ahhh ok.

Would a succint way of putting your argument be

"If we ignore any situations where a small sensor camera will be able to get photos that a FF camera wont, then an FF camera is more versatile"?

Begging the question, methinks.

No, I'm not saying that at all. Your image, in general, could have been recreated by a FF camera by moving your position. Or, if you're alright with getting even more general, by using a longer lens on a FF body, or just a longer lens on any body for that matter.

I cannot think of any scenario where a FF camera couldn't capture an image extremely similar to a MILC. I can think of MANY scenarios where the reverse is not true.
