I wonder, why do people care about equivalence, and how do they use it?

I am used to FF focal length and FF aperture (DOF) numbers and use the equivalence to select my m43/APS-C/MF lens and aperture. SImilar like (still) translating Fahrenheits into Celsius.

I used it to convince myself that I wouldn't be missing out on anything by making a move from APS-C to m4/3.  And so far that has been my experience.
