SURVEY - fatally flawed due to selection bias and other issues

dinoSnake wrote:

So, is this true?  Using FT / mFT users as a test, do you understand "the impact of sensor size on image quality"?  What was your knowledge of this topic at the time you made your purchase decision of the cameras you are now using?  How did your purchase decision go in regards to this?

Please post your replies and thoughts on this topic, I could use feedback urgently.

Thank you!

You won't gain any empirical evidence by asking a group of photo geeks about their knowledge- at best you will get a collection of anecdotal responses, likely full of confirmation bias.

That said, I did a lot of research and testing when switching formats, and I've shot film from 35mm to 120 to 4x5 formats and digital sensors from tiny compacts to m4/3 to aps-c to aps-h to 135 formats. I spent a lot of time researching the pros and cons of each, so I knew what I was getting in to in terms of the inevitable compromise.
