Why Did You Buy A FF Camera?

In the interest of full disclosure, I've never understood why any average guy would buy a FF digital camera and the concept still evades me. I read thread after thread asking if this or that APS/C lens can be used on the a7(x) or complaining about the lack of, or the cost of FF lenses.

Didn't you think it through? Didn't you know what you were getting into? Did you think FF was the magic pill? Are you a just a born again gear junkie? Maybe you're just OCD and it seemed like a good idea at the time?

So, as the title asks: Why did you buy a FF camera?

If the camera is everything you thought it would be and you're totally satisfied I'd like to hear about that too.

Yes, this is a horribly preadjusted post! I understand that. I promise not to be so freaking judgemental in the reply section. I'd love to know what you were thinking when you hit the "Buy Now" button.
