FF is the LAST camera I'd want if I could only own one.   Like having a 1970 Buick and taking that everywhere...to a party, to a performance, on a hiking trip, on  a jet, to a ball game,  etc etc.

They have their use.  But it's quite limiting.

Hahaha.. its more like not using a Ferrari for daily tasks like getting groceries instead of a Prius. FF are at the edge state of technology. Can I ask how FF is limiting you from doing something that you are able to do with a mirrorless except for being heavy?

...I shot oodles of pics with FF film.    Size is a huge deal.  As is wt.  And lenses...good grief, they get to look like a bazooka...I had a 100-400 L lens...nice if you have a sherpa.

And with a 2.8 lens doing a group shot...if you don't watch it...the dof is too shallow to use at 2.8...hence, that aspect becomes useless at that point.

Been there, done that.
