I think you're stuck on counting grams, but for many of us, the real difference is simply the size of these cameras. For example, the Canon SL1, touted as being the world's smallest APS-C DSLR, is still larger than a FF mirrorless Sony A7. I'll say it again, the world's smallest APS-C DSLR is still larger than a FF mirrorless camera...even with lenses mounted.

Think again:

Not equivalent apertures but comparing non-equivalent apertures became a fun game here.

He said Full frame mirrorless vs. APS DSLR.

He also said f/2.8 zooms, etc., and T3 linked to nothing like that.

The FF mirrorless is smaller in size while the APS DLSR has much smaller equivalent apertures. Sadly, you confused FF mirrorless with APS and messed up your comparison.

It was T3 who did that, not me.

LOL, T3 said FF mirrorless vs. APS DSLR. You linked to a Sony A6000 which is APS not FF.

Oops, wrong link. They all look the same! Here is the right one (I hope).

And yes you are comparing F/4 to F/8 which is not very helpful.

The reality is the FF mirrorless camera has wider equivalent apertures and the camera body is smaller than the smallest APS DSLR. Got it?

Cameras do not have apertures - got it? Lenses do.

Did you see the article on equivalence?  I guess not.  The camera sensor determines the equivalent aperture of the lens.   Don't worry, yours is a common mistake.
