Just for fun, a poll on FF IQ
Aug 17, 2014

There have been many threads in the past debating about whether there is a distinctive look to FF images. I definitely agree there is, despite not owning a FF camera because I've seen enough images to know that FF images are quite often distinguishable from those of other sensor sizes, more so than when going 'down the ladder', APS-C from M43, M43 from N1 etc.

So, just for fun, what do you think is the most salient aspect that makes FF images stand out? I'm aware there might be distinction bias (can we really guess which is which separately?) and some sort of expectancy effect/causality issue with shallow DOF so feel free to discuss.
