Tom,

I would be giving up DOF, S/N, dynamic range, and the smooth backgrounds of FF and also to some extent APSC.

In a recent mini challenge of images with bokoh there were some ok images from 1" sensors but none to match FF.

In the few occasions where I need very high ISO or where I have to enhance the shadows a lot (i.e. by making correct exposure on the light parts, the dark parts have to be enhanced) I use Topaz in PP (the same or better can be done with DxO DeepPrime).

Regarding DOF, Like Tom also said, that can be an advantage sometimes. If I want to reduce DOF I go to longer focal lengths. But, then I come again in the bokeh question you also mentioned: it is not smooth. I have to do some experimenting as a function of aperture value. I think, from my images, that bokey is smoother at full open
