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.

If wishes were horses.....

So, if we are never constrained by location, size, weight, etc, then FF are more versatile.

Or, as I like to put it "FF is more versatile as far as the front door."

Location is a limitation of the person, not the camera. As for weight and size, those too are limitations of the person. That's not to say that they may not be important factors when choosing which camera to buy but in terms of image creation itself they aren't all that relevant.

We've been discussing versatility in terms of camera systems. Because I'm a photographer the most important criteria to judge a camera system's versatility is it's ability to create the best possible images in the most possible situations. That means FF systems win.

If you want to judge a camera based on whether or not a 90 year old woman is capable of carrying it around all day long that's fine, but don't confuse that with versatility.
