It's about habits and coping with changes

The main problem, and only for the older ones, is that some of us have got old habits and some fixed 135mm film FLs and their properties fixed in our brains, including me. At least M43's cropping factor is easy to use when we encounter an unfamiliar FL and have to convert to a new equivalent number to compare with old references to know what we are dealing with. Having used a Pentax DSLR before, I found it a challenge for old brains to deal with APSC crop factors sometimes, e.g. in such arithmetic as 1.5 x 43mm, or 1.5 x 77mm,

This is one of the many advantages of M43 over APS-C, an easy to use crop factor.
