The fact that the same aperture diameter gives the same total light at the same field of view is good to know, but it's not as useful when taking pictures.

It's useful if you're shooting with two formats at once or if you are planning to buy new equipment and want to compare on a fair basis.

I just took two photos off the back doorstep with two different format sizes. One with my APS-C X-T2 and another with a 1/2-inch sensor pocket camera...

Framing is roughly where I wanted it and DOF is ample for everything to be in focus with both.

Why exactly should I be worried about achieving equivalence between the two..??
