Sounds like someone is genuinely surprised how close they are, or how small APSC and M43 are to FF perhaps?

One doesn't even need a chart to see the difference, just look at crop factor.  If FF is 1, APSC is (typically) 1.6, and M43 is 2.

The thing about APSC is this: there is only one reason to use APSC over FF, and that is for sports or extreme telephoto photography. There are no size advantages.

On the other hand, when you step down, the M43 makes perfect sense because the average body and lens is 50% the size of APSC/FF.  So, you can 'take it with you'.

And yes, I have all three: D800, D7000, E-M1.
