But that was the point -- he is arguing:

A) You must look at equivalent generation cameras, you can’t just say FF has "X" advantage, because the vast majority of FF cams out rthere do not -- they are older generation. That's a major point he was making.

Well, you can make the exact same point the other way around: most m43 cameras out there today are old generation as well. Only since the OM-D and GH3, did m43 catch up on the technology front. Previous Oly sensors for instance were quite bad, comparatively worse than older FF sensors (from a technological perspective).

Of course you can, which is why it is silly to make blanket statements.
