Look, I was just trying to make a point that it's sort of ridiculous to equate "pro" with Full-Frame. And yeah, I get it: it's Craigslist. No big deal.

Of course there are advantages to Full-Frame, but it's also just a gimmick. We all know that the 35mm film size was a total accident. Olympus was onto something back when they came up w/ 4/3... designed from the ground-up for digital. No reliance on an arbitrary "35mm" size.

Uhh... 4/3 was just as arbitrary - it was based on what Kodak could affordably fabricate at the time.  And considering where things stand today, that doesn't look like an especially smart bet.  They could've saved a lot of time and money if they'd picked a better sensor partner like Sony.
