It is called trolling, and you just confirmed it.

Appears not, appears FF shooters are very insecure?

Are you still sticking to your story that this was a simple question?

So it wasn't just a simple question ... it was also a rather silly one, as if to suggest that M4:3 IQ has come so far in its development, it can now easily compete with full frame, which is, of course, nonsense.

The evidence actually suggests otherwise, and not one poster has posted anything apart from "comment" to support any such thing.

I'm curious as to what evidence you think suggests otherwise.  Nothing in this thread shows that M43 equals FF in all regards.  I shoot both, I shoot M43 more than I shoot FF over the past three years.  But I don't live in a fantasy world where I believe my E-M5 equals FF in all regards.

I see what you did there. Transferred your insecurity onto others. Very cunning (and only took a day to come up with )

I'll give you 12 months before your insecurity results in you buying a FF dSLR... and you really don't need one.

The only thing that can be definitively answered is that you are a much better troll than you are a photographer.

Is M43 really better than RAW-recording compacts ? Why ?
In reply to A2T2, Jun 10, 2013

Please explain why this would be the case in specific and technically coherent terms, magister ...

Original poser is inconsistent:

There are some comments on mirrorless rumors by a pro who has been using the G6 and he says its excellent, in fact he basically says if you want real improvement in iq go MF!

Image-sensor active-area size either matters, or it does not. If original poser asserts that it does not, a technical explanation is in order. Neither perceptual or technical myopia qualifies as objective fact.

yes, FF is really better than m43 for the same reason DX is better than m43

If I said I used a FF camera to produce this would you dispute it, seriously, why?

No as I could probably achieve comparable results using a lens cap with a pinhole.

That is one of the worst lenses that I have ever seen - is this deliberate?

My main camera is a 5D Mark III. Its focus is amazing, the fps blistering, the lenses astounding, the noise performance is amazing. However, it's a monster to carry around. This weekend, my wife was off visiting her sister and I decided to take our 5.5 and 1.5 year old girls to the zoo. No stroller - they are a pain. So, I grabbed my Thinktank backpack which usually stores a 5DIII with a 24-70 or a 70-200mm, a flash, smaller lens, batteries, etc. and made it into a diaper bag. Today I was able to pack an epl5 with 17mm 1.8 with flash attached, diapers, wipes, ointment, 2 peaches, an apple, granolla bars, seed and nuts, raisons, and goldfish crackers. I haven't seen the pics yet, but they will not be nearly as good as a well done shot composed with a 5D III which has more field of view and better optics. The new Sigma 35mm 1.4 beats the Olympus 17mm 1.8 as does the Canon 50mm 1.2. However, there is NO WAY I would have been able to manage today with a DSLR! Today it was all point and shoot style with facial autofocus. Today is the day that the Micro 4/3 format was designed for!

I'm not worried about the bulk, I need the best camera for my work, if it is only for family casual snapshots then anything can do it
