You have more lens options with the aps-c

1) But those EF lenses are not designed and optimized for APS-C. They all work much better on FF than on APS-C.

2) They work in different AOV. 50mm FL on FF becomes 80mm FF eq on the same AOV.

3) Lenses must natively designed and optimized on a specific crop format to work at best potential as Sigma 18-35, EF-M 22/2.0, EF-S 17-55/2.8 IS... There are not many choices.  And still not work as good as FF counterpart lenses on FF bodies.

So actually there are much less choices of lenses that are natively designed and optimized, and can be fully leveraged on APS-C than on FF.
