. . . You can shoot whatever DOF you want on FF -- just stop down.  The advantage of crop is the higher pixel density of the sensor for when you are magnification or focal length limited.

that's new to me

There is no current f/1.0 or larger aperture lens with AF and there is only one excellent f/1.2 lens currently in production.

LOL, I thought another crop advantage on equivalent DOF, so he give up finally? 

I thought your comment was about the wide open shallow DOF possibility and with FF you're currently limited to f/1.2 on Canon and to f/1.4 on Nikon and Sony FF

There would be room for some nice really fast lenses especially for 50 mm - this cought my attention lately

Let's cross fingers that Canon does something similar for 1/2 the price or with f/1.2 maybe for 2/3rds of the price

It will be nice if Sigma update its 50/1.4 with one similar to 35/1.4, 50/1.4 Art at half price of 50L.
