Thanks.

FF lenses can be used on every E-mount camera, it does not matter if it is a camera with a FF sensor or one with a APS sized sensor.

The FE lenses (FF E-mount lenses work without adapter and, as far as I know without any real drawbacks IQ, or feature wise.

The only drawbacks for FF lenses are Size and Price (the will be larger and more expensive then APS lenses). So when size and /or priceis realy important go for APS lenses, otherwise you could buy both, when you buy FE lenses you will be able to use them on a FF E-mount camera and use the whole sensor, not only a crop part of it

plus when using FE glass on an APS-C camera, you are gaining a heavier lens, yet you are only the center portion of the lens.

Are there disadvantages when using only the center portion of the lens?
