But even when DOF doesn't matter (either because we don't care, or the whole of the scene is well within the DOF even at wide apertures), it's still not about exposure, but about the total amount of light collected:

exposure is the only governance left if DoF doesnt matter

Once again, not exposure, but total light collected:

complete nonsense

if this werent true cameras would have no need of speed priority settings which overide aperture considerations. take a look on your Canon, Im sure you can manage to find it somewhere

I'm gonna cut this short, and simply rephrase my question, which you continue to duck:

Consider a FF camera and an mFT camera, both with equally efficient sensors.  In terms of the visual properties of the final photo, what does 50mm f/2 1/100 ISO 400 on the mFT camera do for you that 100mm f/4 1/100 ISO 1600 on the FF camera does not?

You see, the answer to that question, which you continue to "take the Fifth" on, is the key to your lack of understanding.
