Let me give you an unscientific answer which somebody may not expect from me

With my full frame D800E, I stopped caring about technical details. Eventually, I could focus on the artistic side trusting a photo's technical aspects won't let me down. There simply is enough headroom now, no reason to pixel peep anymore.

That was never really the case with APSC. I continued to check for image quality, did pixel peep on the rear screen. I didn't notice at the time but now I know it limited the creative half of my brain ...

It is a combination of everything actually, better AF accuracy (AF errors are MUCH more visible with APSC), better DR, better lens edge sharpness, shorter exposure times etc. In the end and for me personally, it marks the magical threshold of good enough to not worry. YMMV
