it’s true that modern digital photography can do away with large aperture but then it’s called a smartphone.

Let’s elaborate: great bokeh is what FF is all about, and the last thing that computational photography still struggles a bit to do without occasional artefacts. So you still want large aperture lenses. If you don’t you’re better off with an APSC, bridge or smartphone.

I find that I hardly ever use lenses wide open, both with medium format and with FF. I deeply disagree with your text that I bolded above.

OK, I'm at peace with myself since you haven't bolded everything
