Perhaps that realization is leading you to your usual run about. This was the question you didn't answer:

Put 200/2.8 on a FF camera, take note of your exposure variables. Turn crop mode on (I understand Canon can't do it, but Sony and Nikon allow it). Do you expect exposure values to be off by a stop?

"Usual run about"?

I am quite sure that the Great Bustard is aware that exposure, as categorized by f/stop, exposure time and ISO, is totally independent of sensor dimensions. So there's no need to respond to a tautology.

You can foam at the mouth about equivalance but that doesn't affect its validity.

You think he is, that tells me you are just as clueless. Prove me wrong by answering the question I posed that your buddy is going to be running around, rest of the way. Whining and crying about my response for the non-sense is not going to cut it.

Hint: Question has to do with exposure values.
