Interesting thread this...
This is Durham University's Student Union building, Dunelm House. Designed by Ove Arup, it's a building that you love or loath (like the Kingsgate Bridge nearby). There are plans to demolish it, but there is a lot of opposition to that - Dunelm House, Durham
I've been around the houses a lot of late. I jumped into m43 back in 2012 when it was in its ascendency (from Canon FF DSLR - 5Dii) and found it a very liberating experience. I since built a decent Olympus system (including buying a 75/1.8 from @christilou) and apart from a brief dabble with a...

I guess that's my point really. What do most amateur photographers do with their output? I'd guess it's mostly on-line with the occasional wall print or photobook thrown in. I contend that FF is mostly overkill for that so far as IQ at low ISO is concerned (I accept there might be other...
I understand entirely what you're saying here Matt. FF files do make for a more malleable experience in LR. For sure, you can't afford to do quite the same degree of cropping or shadow lifting with m43. However, at least for my eyes, and when using base ISO, I find that two shots taken of the...
I posted this over on mu43:
Looking at the shots here on Cameraderie, it only emphasises my point - cover up the EXIF and it's often impossible to know whether you're looking at a shot from a Fuji GFX or a Sony RX100.
