@PDXphotographer
The noise in FF cameras is controlled just as well, as in crop cameras. There is just less of it. Guess how small FF primes can be. Google it.

@jadot
You talk like a 10.y.o. :)) Too much sugar?
Maybe you don't need a camera at all ... ever thought about that? If a picture is not worth to be of a great quality, then perhaps (very likely) it is not worth shooting at all. Specially when that extra quality doesn't cost anything extra really. Maybe you are just wasting your time.

Mr. troll, what you can't understand is physics. I don't care about D500 type of machines. I've had enough of crop cameras, so I'm pretty sure about that. 7DII, D500, A77 ... they are all fine, just fine, but they are cropped and I'm not going to pay $2k for D500. I'd rather get a nice 1" super-zoom camera.

FF ISO 200 is equivalent to APSC ISO 80. If you use 200 on both, then you'll get a completely different amount of noise.
FF 50mm F1.8 ISO800 1/250s ~ APSC 35mm F1.2 ISO320 1/250s
and only then you get similar results.

How many times I have to repeat this?
APSC@F1.4 ~ FF@2.1
APSC@F2.8 ~ FF@4.2
and so on. You are just making the same stupid mistake over and over again.
For example:
FE 70-200/4 $1500 840g
XF 45-130/2.6 ... whatever, there is XF 50-140/2.8 $1600 995g, not as good, while heavier and more expensive

FE 16-35/4 $1350 518g
XF 11-24/2.6 doesn't exist

FE 55/1.8 $1000 281g
XF 35/1.2 doesn't exist

FE 28/2 $450 200g
XF 18/1.3 doesn't exist

FE 35/1.4 $1600 630g
XF 24/0.95 doesn't exist

EF 85/1.2 $1900 1025g
XF 56/0.8 doesn't exist

The gap was, is and will remain the same! It was 2.35x difference back then and it is exactly the same 2.35x difference now! Get over it!

All I'm saying is that APS-C is much more limited. And I can't see why it would help you "to afford a more complete array of quality lenses sooner than I could with FF". Equivalent FF optics are just as small, provide just as much light and cost just as much or even less than Fuji :)

Well, "if you don't shoot in low light, aggressively crop images, or print poster size prints, there isn't much need" for you to advocate for Fuji propaganda & marketing department. Many people do exactly what you don't. I do crop a lot when I need more reach, and with a crop camera I would be needing a bigger lens to carry around, because cropping a crop isn't going to work that well. Trust me I've tried. That's the reason why those cameras are called crop cameras. Now I'm good with FF and some nice, small and affordable prime lenses. Even 100% crops are good enough to call it a photograph, while APS-C crops looks like crap.

What prevents putting the on-sensor AF technology from mirrorless into DSLR? - Nothing! It will happen. Even now, Canon DPAF is decent and pretty promising. I'm talking about 1DXII. Have you seen it?
There is no need for larger lenses, it's a myth! You are just bond to unreasonable superstition and magical numbers. F2.8 means nothing without the sensor format it is used with. You are making no sense.

Are you saying that a full stop better result is not good enough? Are you mad?
What "higher lens weight/cost" ? That difference in ISO is exactly the reason why you don't need a "higher lens weight/cost". That's where you actually save money with FF.
Unbelievable ... jeez ...

Do you realize that your opinion is not a scientific proof of anything? It's just a 'blah blah blah' type of argument. You need to test it and look at the evidence.
What is more plausible? - That your magical Fuji-cam defies the laws of physics and makes FF obsolete? - Or that you need better glasses?

@brownie314
It very much depends on the size of those results. In 100x150 pix they'll all look the same.

@jadot
You seem to be confused. FF is not better and cheaper because I like it. I like it because it's better and cheaper.
"Sometimes FF is better for certain jobs, and sometimes APSC or m4/3 is better than FF" - yes, and you buy a separate camera for each job. I don't, I buy one that can do them all. Fuji doesn't outperform FF in anything (maybe except some things all small sensors have an advantage in, like flash sync). It is a luxury product.
Maybe you are not viewing your images large enough, so you don't see the difference. And if that is the case, then maybe even 1" sensor would satisfy you. I can't argue with that, but it would not mean that it is better than FF.
Once again, I'll refresh your short memory - I'm not bothered by Fuji's release, I'm bothered by the vicious ignorance and deceptive propaganda that you are advocating for.

@Aaron801
I don't understand how "smaller format will satisfy" and "smaller format will cost as much as larger format" coexist in you head without any cognitive dissonance.
:) Must be a mystery.
Crop is not really smaller (it doesn't have to be), it is a myth.

@Al wants a bagel
You are free to like and own whatever camera you want. I have no problem with that. I'm against silly nonsense like APSC being "the new FF" :)) or that "FF is million times bigger and heavier" BS ...
If I had to buy a mirrorless crop camera, it wou ld be a6300, most likely (definitely not the XT2) and maybe a speedbooster for adapting my Canon lenses.
If Fuji made FF, it would probably cost as much as Medium Format.

I don't care if Fuji will ever go FF ... I'm asking you to image a parallel universe, where it already happened and there is X-T2 crop for $1600 and X-F1 FF (instead of Sony A7II) for $1700 ... Your thoughts please ...
I'm trying to understand, if it's just the Fuji virus (which I'm immune to), or you are a troll.

... that horrible feeling when I'm stuck with boring people with no imagination ...

With XF100-400 on FF and your level of tolerance (to image quality) you would get all the same in crop mode. + the ability to compose & crop later + to see wider around the frame while shooting + all the benefits while not using the maximum reach. All that for only $100 extra.

webber15 ... imagine if there was a FF Fuji camera, let's say X-F1 (whatever), which would cost only $100 more than X-T2. What would you preach then?

I don't know what planet are you from, but it is clear to me that you can't read English. Because I'm NOT saying that APSC is dead! I'm saying, that XT2 is overpriced! :)

@Aaron801
By your logic ... as the technology improves smaller sensors have gotten better and better ... and the bigger sensors did not? Can't see logic in that, sorry. More is more.
Size and weight is not really a factor, because with bigger sensor you can use smaller lenses to get the same result (of a crop camera with bigger and brighter lenses).
Shallower DoF is not the only thing ... The only thing is the amount of light gathered by the sensor. You are getting cleaner ISOs ... low, high, medium, all of them... because of the larger pixels or more of them... , less aberrations (because they are physically smaller in proportions to the image), less diffraction, better contrast, etc, ... more information basically.
You can't beat physics!

In reply to:

jadot: Reading through, there are a lot of comments from people who just don't understand why Fuji have let them down by not surprising them with the full frame (presumably in the same size body) XT2.
And to vent this disappointment there's lots of talk and misunderstanding of the merits of "Full Frame" and specifically aperture equivalence.

Fuji aren't going to suddenly turn their X-system cameras into what people are referring to as full frame. It's not going to happen.

They might make a new mf style camera and build into a new category, but the X-series as we know it will continue to be the size that is so upsetting for some people.

Does this mean that apsc is not good enough, or not as good as a larger sensor camera that might have been created in order to fit lenses in already in production by Nikon And Canon? No. It does not.

If a modern digital format doesn't meet your unreal expectations, then go ahead. It literally doesn't matter if you're convinced that FF is superior.

@jadot
Really? Politicians don't lie? Says who? Politicians?

If you like your Fuji, then that's what you should shoot with! Why are you shooting weddings with Fuji and Nikon? Why not just Fuji? Same reason other people like their DSLRs? Well, most of us don't/can't buy into two systems, mostly because we are not professionals, gear collectors or wealthy people.
Why can't you realize that I don't hate Fuji? I like their cameras. I just don't like BS. The question is - why are YOU trolling this forum. Are you getting paid by Fuji? :) Yes, about the money ... why are you ignoring the fact that the main argument here is the price? It is not about APSC being too small!
You got me. I can't afford Fuji. Therefore I must use good old FF because of that.
Bye.

Moving on to FF would be the best forward movement there is.
Size matters!
