I haven't applied it. I went from compact to APS-C DSLR because of the typical shooting delay and very limited background blur of compact cameras.

At that time I only knew that the larger sensor would give more background blur at the same f-stop, but I had not yet figured out the exact relationship.

I dream of FF, but I also did that before. So no influence there neither.

But if I were to buy a compact camera again for some purpose, the knowledge of equivalent f-stops would heavily influence my decision.
