Why do you want a full frame GR?
7

Some people long for a full frame GR. Do you? Why?

Personally I don’t, because

  • it would be most likely more expensive than a smaller sensor camera and price is an issue for me,
  • it would likely need to be bigger than a smaller sensor camera, and I’d rather prefer a smaller body like the GRDs
  • I prefer a deep depth of field and a larger sensor doesn’t help in that respect.

I realize that other people probably prefer a thin depth of field, but then DPreview’s article https://www.dpreview.com/articles/8432414091/powershot-shootout-canon-s-g1-x-iii-and-g7-x-ii is quite interesting. What’s the point of the bigger sensor if it gets matched with a darker lens to keep the size down?
