So a f/1.8 on a 1" sensor would still gather more light than a f/3.5 on an APS-C?

The overall noise advantage was 1/3 of a stop right from the start, since f/1.8 on 1" puts 1/3 of a stop more light on the sensor as f/3.5 on APS-C for the same scene and exposure time.

But how many times do I have to say that "noise" is NOT a concern until it becomes noticeably-objectionable.

Yes, but the point others are making is that for both camera setups the noise will become a concern under about the same lighting conditions, give or take 1/3 stop. And therefore from a "PRACTICAL" standpoint they are about the same.

So from a "PRACTICAL" standpoint, I see a 2-stop (SS) advantage, (until noise becomes a factor).
