Re: updgrading from crop to FF - noise performance

You have it pretty much right. More information in these explainer articles:

  1. https://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care
  2. https://www.dpreview.com/learn/2799100497/equivalence-in-a-nutshell

That hinges on the assumption that the sensors are comparable, so it's useful as a general rule but can also differ slightly case by case. You can test that for this specific A/B comparison here: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison
