I frequently feel that this particular argument is perpetuated by non-M43 users who are trying to prove how INCOMPETENT M43 is to make themselves feel better about their own DSLR choices.  I often wonder what cameras the loudest equivalence complainers have....are they really FF users, or are they APS-C users trying to justify the small gains in DOF of their APS-C models over M43?  Perhaps the answer to these arguments should simply be: Why not try out the M43 cameras and lenses and see if they work for you?  No point in getting into this fray again and again.....

I suppose we all have our own frames of reference.

I see a lot of posts to the effect that m43 is better than FF because, for example, a m43 35-100/2.8 is much smaller, lighter and less expensive than a FF 70-200/2.8 lens.

The OP in this thread certainly doesn't fit your description of equivalence posters in the quoted paragraph
