And FF is another advantage, I acknowledge you don't want to talk about that, but it's a huge advantage so you can't just gloss over it.

It is not a HUGE advantage. In a practical sense in most cases it is even irrelevant.

Size, usability, ergonomics, weight, things like focus peaking etc.. Those are huge advantages in a more practical sense.

The AF from a nikon D800 for example. For me as a user, that's the one reason i would grab it instead of my XE-2. And video

If i had a dollar for every time i heard about DOF. Odd, people use "preference" to explain why they like OVF for example, but nobody understands that not everybody likes super thin DOF. That is just as much a preference as anything else. I like seperation, but i don't need it to the extent a FF F1.2 offers. Something in the order of a F2.8 would offer enough for me, while making focusing much more accurate.

As you say, other things like peaking make a huge difference, but are completely overlooked. Some people just don't want to admit the truth, which is why the FF a7/r gets so much hate.
