Equivalence is the dead horse IMO
In reply to sportyaccordy, 9 months ago

Except for FL translation, most other aspects of equivalence are irrelevant for most people, so larger means better, generally, in IQ aspects. Why is more DoF better than less Dof? Ask a wedding or a sports photog and they will tell you that shallow DoF is required for their business. Many PJs also like to isolate politicians and personalities, so events shooters will also like less DoF. Many landscapers, otoh, will like more DoF.

People with brand/format agendas are the ones that like to bring these "equivalence" findings to the fore.
