Read it, don't agree. I can only imagine that the author must be a noob who has never owned a camera in another format. Equivalence is an extremely useful concept if you own cameras in multiple systems and often need to figure out just what to use for a shot. Even for one-camera folks, it also comes in handy if you ever decide to dump your current gear and go to a larger or smaller format.

This attitude reminds me of compact camera owners who have no idea about millimeters and prefer to think in terms of "X's of zoom" (3x zoom, 10x zoom, etc).

you either didn't read it or didn't read the whole thing, the author cleary mentions he's shot with all the common formats before and mentions the usefullness of knowing the equivalence.

Then why the ridiculous title?    He's just trying to be provocative to get hits.

The content is technically correct, but it's quite biased, downplaying the advantages of FF and bolstering the advantages of smaller formats.

It's funny that there's really no need to be biased like that, since m43 does stand on its own without the need for the drama.
