Another short couple answers to a long question - 1) the capability of getting more DOF control at my typical FOVs and distances, 2) less noise at my typical FOVs and DOFs, 3) little better DR up from base ISO, 4) the new 'capabilty' it seems to bring to lenses that seemed somewhat pedestrian on aps-c.

Also, not really related to IQ, but the performance (AF lock, AF accuracy, metering, etc) has just been better on the FF bodies I've owned compared to the aps-c bodies I've owned. This is highly body dependent though.

If I were to summarize these : it's just easier to get the good image with the larger sensor, for me.
