I think the notion of FF = heavier lens may not be true

35mm f/4 on APS-C for a scene versus 50mm f/4 lens on FF for the scene, do you expect shutter speed to be about twice as fast for the FF?

Depends who is shooting. You would not know what to do, I can tell that much.

Let us assume you know how to shoot... would you know? And if you would... what would you expect?

As I said, depends what you want. SS is up to the photographer and it is not determined by the FL and the aperture. If I do choose a faster speed with FF, I will get the same noise. If I choose the same speed, I will get a cleaner image. But once you chose the same vs. equivalent apertures, the two images are not going to look alike, whatever SS you choose.

I am again pretending that I believe you that you want to learn.
