That's the real problem with the article. It seems designed to provoke a strong reaction rather than to honestly inform. He was careful to have his facts correct (for the most part), but brushed off inconvenient facts so as to obscure the things contrary to his theme. He usually does a much better job.

The vast majority of time I encounter the equivalence mavens is when they're correcting someone who gets something wrong because they don't understand the issues (sometimes with their own brand of provocative equivalence attitude), rather than the author's notion of equivalence gangs roaming the internet bashing m43 in favor of full frame.
