If the subject is image quality, then you will get no argument from me.

Full frame wins, hands down.

However, once we start talking about ergonomics and balance, and the "ease of carrying them around all day" then you have opened the door for me to mention the biggest strength that MILC cameras have. Some might even say the only strength, but there is no denying that there is huge size and weight advantage, and very often a cost advantage as well.

You just cannot have it both ways.

Full frame wins on image quality, and MILC wins on ease of use. And unless you have very demanding needs the image quality should be sufficient for most amateur photographers.

Remember, once you start comparing APS-C DSLRs to APS-C MILC cameras there is absolutely no difference in sensor size, and very often the MILC camera will provide the same, or better image quality.
