Yes it does. Let me explain:

Suppose the MFT user can take a certain photo at 25 mm, f/2.8, 1/100 s, and ISO 3200. To capture the same photo, the FF user needs 50 mm, f/5.6, 1/100 s, and ISO 12800. Do you get it?

That would be a very, very dark place. Are you sure it is not a security camera you are talking about ?

Absolutely. Many of us shoot in conditions where the examples I provided apply.

Generally I take my camera out when I see good and interesting light,

One of many common mistakes is to equate good (in the sense of bright light) with interesting light. Midday sun is but one example.

not when it is pitch dark and I can not find the dials. You do it differently?

Absolutely, perhaps because I can still find the dials.
