Re: APSC vs FF

To my eyes, the ISO advantage is definitely there in a FF sensor. APS-C just cannot cut it when you go above ISO 400 unless you PP a lot (some bodies like the Nikon D7100 in that price range are pretty good though). Those who have or had owned an APS-C like the A77 know what I am talking about
FF sensors like the A7 are very usable even at ISO 6400:

Here is an ISO6400 shot on a cloudy day with almost no bright colors but looks quite usable

Hmm, that's interesting, I have a bunch of >800 ISO shots on my NEX-7 that are very usable, same with my A7r with some shots >10000 ISO, it really depends on the subject, how it's shot, and how it's displayed.
