People find it difficult to be unbiased... subtle and hidden pressures

That's not a fair comparison anyway.  Nowadays my daylight snap using full-frame plus L-lens will not look much different than a snap from the latest Nokia camera phone, even when zooming in.

It's when things like versatility, DoF, low-light and the rest come into play that large-sensor cameras really show their worth.
