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?

But I can't select any option....Another untested rubbish "upgrade".P.S. I'm using Opera which is a perfectly acceptable browser.
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!
