...and you don't.

In order for 50mm f/2.8 on FF to be truly equivalent to 25mm f/1.4 on MFT you'd have to shoot FF at quadruple the ISO value, which essentially negates FF's advantage in image quality.

It is called equivalence for a reason.

Right,

So you admit you are trolling?

so the only things that aren't equivalent are cost and weight. where on both counts FF loses by a landslide.

Sure, like with the Voigtlander Nokton 25mm f/0.95, which is 435g - more than 3x heavier than the Canon 50/1.8 and 9x the price.

Oh that's funny you're leaving out the camera body again you shoot photos with just a lens? Or are you going to make the same inane comparison as LeeJay of a consumer-level 6D to a pro GH4 or E-M1?
