Why I chose FF.

Now I'm being passive aggressive - so you don't look at the images from potential equipment you want to buy? You buy FF because f/4 is equivalent to f/2 on m43?

I chose FF because:

  • I love shallow DOF (but that does not mean I have to always use shallow DOF with FF).
  • The more detail the better.
  • The less noise the better.
  • I could afford to do so and the size and weight were not a limiting factor.

As I always like to say, if it were not for differences in size, weight, and price, we'd all be shooting FF, even if we did not need a more shallow DOF than what FF offers, did not need more resolution than we currently have, and did not need less noise than we currently have.

Many ask me why I don't shoot MF. Well, there's that whole size, weight, and price thing, right?
