aps-c vs. full frame
Jun 10, 2014

Hey all,

I'm looking to pick up a second camera body (Canon), as it's too much of a pain to switch between lenses on the fly, especially on a hiking trail and I'm really interested in nature/wildlife photography/photojournalism as a potential career path and right now have the means to purchase something used.

So my biggest question, as I haven't been able to find a definitive answer is:

Other than being able to capture more light thus making it easier to capture at dusk/dawn, what's the major difference/benefits between Full Frame, and ASP-C sensors?

I've been looking all morning, but can't seem to find anything that's not more than four years old, so I was hoping for some recent information.

Any links to articles, personal experience, or even opinions are much appreciated and encouraged.
