My point is that,

if APS-C lens is equally well designed and optimized on APS-C, then it will perform better than a FF lens designed and optimized on an APS-C camera with the same or similar FL on the same FF eq spec such as a F1.8 lens on APS-C vs a F2.8 lens on FF;

If a FF lens is, as you say, also a lens designed and optimized on an APS-C camera, then likely it will perform better than a APS-C only lens on APS-C. The things that make any FF lens great...often carry over when same lens is mounted on APS-C. Great FF lens, with rare exceptions, don't often become "poor" when mounted on APS-C. That's part of the reason you don't see many truly great APS-C only lenses.

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)
