Yes, real world helps these discussions which I why I'm using full frame DSLR prime lenses that exist rather than attempting to compare APS-C mirrorless prime lenses to APS-C DSLR prime lenses that do not exist.

What mirror-less camera are you using for this comparison, and why? Because they are more comparable to FF cameras than to APS-C versions?

Does it matter? I'm referring to APS-C mirrorless lenses that exist. That means Sony, Fuji, Canon, and Fuji. Somewhere along the lines we were talking about m4/3 lenses and even some full frame mirrorless (Leica) lenses.

Leica is under consideration (for that matter any FF lens) because they can be used on these mirror-less cameras. But the issue is your dismissal of comparing APS-C mirror-less to APS-C DSLR. It is inconvenient enough for you to, in fact, run away to FF format where we don't have much of mirror-less presence (at this time) at least not counting Leica.

I'm making comparisons where they can be made, i.e. looking at an existing APS-C/m4/3/Leica mirrorless prime/zoom and talking about it's equivalent lens in full frame DSLR terms.

Yes, I have no problems admitting that APS-C DSLR lenses lose to mirrorless APS-C lenses frequently when there are comparable lenses to evaluate.

Well, according to you, mirror-less cameras are already winning the battle when their sensor size is matched to DSLR.

I'm talking about lenses, not bodies. Why do you keep bringing up bodies?

What are you using lenses for, while you dismiss sensor size as being unimportant?

But the latter loses to full frame DSLR lenses when you compare true equivalents.

And what would comprise these "true equivalents"?

Equal field of view and equal aperture size...

So, you're using "bodies". You need to make up your mind first. Fidgeting around gets a discussion nowhere.

BTW, what exactly is "equal aperture size"?

I hope my equivalency explanations above have answered this question.

No, your ideas are what led to the question. See above.
