Tony Sx: At least half the entries are not paper and not tissue. Whoever is judging this one - GET A GRIP!!!!!

There is NOTHING remotely tissue or paper related with shots of flowers!! Since you're in charge, why don't you at least look at the entries and exclude those that don't conform?

sportyaccordy: APS-C sensors of today have pretty much surpassed the last generation of full frame sensors (i.e. D7100 > D700). Any measure- QE, read noise, DR, color depth, whatever. 30dB S/N ISO is kind of a useless measure as larger sensors need higher sensitivities to maintain exposure for a given depth of field and shutter speed.

Where larger sensors are superior is in glass. For all intents and purposes the practical limit for modern lens speed is F/1.4, and lenses that fast have high trade-offs. In the context of APS-C vs FF, an F/2.0 lens for FF will be the same size/weight/price as an APS-C F/1.4 lens. The sensitivity issue is a wash, and in low light situations the loss of DOF is generally not a big deal, especially at the wide FLs where FF has a lens availability advantage. If there were more fast wide APS-C lenses for mainstream mounts I think a lot of folks would be less apt to jump on the FF train. I realized this researching the jump from Sony E to FE.

Hmmm. Have you tried a Rokkor f1.2 50mm or 58mm lens on a DSLR? I own and use both on a Sony APS-C camera. There is no quality trade-off, only having to set the lens manually. I also own a Zeiss 85mm f1.4 - read indepentent reviews, no trade-off. Also, I suppose that you don't believe any of the Leica owners using f1.0 lenses?

CaPi: You give word to the thoughts I've been having for quite some time..
There are moments where I coudl dearly use the high iso capabilities of a full frame.. and the rest of the time I'd rather not carry it around..
ánd dont buy more lenses for my aps.c..

Since when was a FF more capable of high ISO than APS-C?

So I've reported it here. And I've reported it ot Feedback. There, I requested a response but no feedback and no fix. Oh! And the smilies don't work either!

Lenses used cover 16mm to 55mm. Hardly a representative focal length sample!

Please allow searching of the "For sale/Wanted" forum so as to exclude "US/Canada" or "Europe" even if you're unable to include/exclude specific countries.
