Is it just me or if you go and look around at the forums of APS-C cameras and their photos and compare with photos that are posted on this forum you will notice a difference. APS-C cameras, to ME, seem to produce photos with a "fuller" feel to them, not "flat" like m4/3. Also, the color fidelity, sharpness and dynamic range of APS-C sensors are just better to MY eyes. Noise level is better controlled on APS-C sensors too. I just cannot get over the "flatness" of m4/3 sensors and that's a main reason why I went with APS-C sensors instead. I assume that FF sensors will be even better. Sometimes you just have to use you own eyes and not some fancy scientific comparison with fancy graphs and charts and numbers. I trust my eyes more than anything else!

An example of what a good APS-C sensor and the right lens can produce:

...are different from mine. Those shots are not particularly compelling in any way other than that they're...well...in focus? Vague platitudes like 'fuller' and 'not flat' when coupled with color fidelity, sharpness and dynamic range should be backed up by photos that have some pop and don't have blown highlights in the background.
