He wrote that, too? Does DPR get something - or anything, right?

From the point of view of vignetting, CA and corner resolution, that's absolutely right.

Vignetting only. You forget the 1.6 factor.

And how does it enter the equation? Lenses for FF need to have better design and cost more to built to avoid loss of detail (resolution) along edges of frame, compared to APS-C.

If you use equivalent FL, even if you gain in the WA in terms of cost for FF (but not all cost is compensated if design is dedicated to each sensor size), you loose even more in teles. A 400mm f/4 for APS-C is much less expensive and easier to design than a 600 f/4 for FF.

CA, well, again corners show more, so FF should have more problems with that.
