I think that exactly that was the original point of the thread : a µFT shooter being confronted with a so-called teacher who obviously did not have a clue about crop factor (not only FT but also APS-C) and who wanted to hide that cold fact behind a facade of "FF is the best teaching format" (so you should get it also as the best learning format).

In the analog days that was true: 135 equipment was cheap and having all students use the same format simplified darkroom equipment. Nowadays with all the different formats it doesn't make any sense to not teach how to make the trivial geometry conversions from one sensor size to another.
