I checked the video ... I forgot to specify that the 53mm focal length of the Fujifilm is EQUIVALENT but not its REAL focal length which is actually 35mm, on the Fujifilm I kept its 35mm 1.4. I'll try to add something on the video if I can ...

Thanks for your comment!

It's better to think of APS-C as the 1.5x center crop relative to FF (which is exactly what it is) rather than APS-C having an equivalent FL.

Lens FL is what is stamped in front of the lens, even if there is no sensor

Moreover, if FL/F# and the focus distance are the same, APS-C will have shallower DOF and narrower FOV and FF will have deeper DOF and wider FOV.
