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

Re: Back to the original point:

I guess I just don't understand. I have cameras with several different sensor sizes, and I also have cameras with the same sensor size that have huge differences in noise characteristics. And I may choose to use a different exposure in certain situations to reduce the chance of what I consider excessive noise, but it is not in direct relation to sensor size, it is more based on noise characteristics of the particular sensor. I quite frequently use apsc cameras that exhibit more noise in photos than some of my smaller sensor cameras. But I'm not yet ready to throw my old cameras away because of this. Also, understand that I do not consider using post processing in my photo workflow. If your workflow entails shooting raw and processing yourself, that changes everything which I have no problem with, but the difference is in the manipulation of the data after exposure was done, not simply the characteristics of the particular sensor.
