So after all this techno jargon, a FF camera is at best only able to produce an image that is "more appealing" by a certain number of stops of ISO. It is no different than how an ISO 200 shot on a D7000 is more appealing than an ISO 400 shot on a D7000. Doesn't seem like much huh?. A FF is about a stop and a hair better than apsc, about 2 stops better than MFT, about 2.7 stops better than 1". This is the extent of the magic, other than that, it is factors besides the sensor, such as the photographer, the lens, or other features such as AF.

When you see it for what it is, it doesn't really look like magic afterall.
