Re: "Envelope" is a more useful concept than "equivalence" IMHO

That's irrelevant if you can't see the difference in the result.  The result is the image in the final size you intend look at, not blowing it up to 200% to pixel peep it.

Why can you not see the difference? The DR difference is pretty big so is the resolution difference.

Regarding the potential choice of smaller formats (in this case, M4/3 relative to Full Frame):

My worldview is to understand that the camera/lens choice reduces the envelope. Therefore if I'm happy to live within the smaller envelope then "equivalence" arguments are really pointless.  I really don't care if a particular lens is inferior to it's FF "equivalent" because I've decided I'm quite happy living with the limitations of the smaller format and its lenses.


Perhaps when Sean decides for himself to utilize a smaller "envelope", he imagines that such a situation might be acceptable for others. If not, perhaps they might just be "pixel peepers" ?
