Never said it did. I said the EF lens ".. can actually be better across the frame (on APS-C) than than the non-EF counterpart" (mounted on APS-C only) That's counter to your suggestion of the opposite.

So you're not talking on the difference on the same lens between FF and APS-C.

No your reading it better. True.

You're talking a good APS-C lens could be better than a poor FF lens on APS-C camera, or a good EF lens can be better on a poor APS-C lens on APS-C, that is very different from what I said above.

Correct, you were missreading, and the generalities you stated here were not correct.

You may have simply worded it a bit off regards what you meant. Understandable. Not an easy read sometimes.

I said in order to get best performance, a lens MUST designed and optimized on that specific crop format.

That is actually not true as a well designed/optimized FF lens may also be outstanding on APS-C as well. On does not necessarily preclude the other. Many cases of that.

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)
