The improvement in sensors and post-processing software has been so great that today the difference between FF and a Sony 1" is moot for nearly everyone. I'm in the group that says the difference is not worth the trouble when you are traveling. My Rx100(s) are always with me and the RX10 is there for nature photography. There may be some APSC work for closeups and macros, but only at home. On the road it's 1" all the way.

Because I started 65 years ago with film I think of my RX10 iii as a Ferrari compared to the Lada that was my Praktica, and when an SSC Tuatara shoots past me I don't care at all.

When it comes to outdoor photography, I agree that the one-inch sensor cameras are very good and, for a lot of people, would be just as good, in many situations, as a full frame camera, especially if their primary use of the images was posting to social media.

With that said, I think for indoor, lower light photography, a camera with an APS or full frame sensor is much better.

Just the same, I have a full frame camera that I love but have to admit that probably 80% of my snapshots (that's what all my images are) are taken with a Sony RX100 series camera.
