Not the case

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.

Not necessarily. In some cases, they can actully be better across the frame (on APS-C) than than the non-EF counterpart. In many cases they are actully designed to be optimized on both formats.

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

No, they do not.

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.

Again, just not the case...with very very few exceptions.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
