Re: The Equivalence Trap

I believe the real purpose of introducing equivalence dicsussions in the M43 forum is to persuade aspiring photographers to switch to full frame camera systems.

In the past the discussions were used to remind us that we bought an inferior system.

But in most cases M4/3 fits the good enough to excellent description, plus we spend way less on physiotherapy to sort out bad backs, so we can safely ignore the equivalence preaching pests.

The real use of equivalence is to gently explain to someone why their 1/2.33" sensor pocket camera with a 25-700mm equivalent small aperture lens does not produce as good a result as their friend who has a Canikon FF DSLR with some chunky constant f/2.8 zoom on it.
