Thanks to this, I went looking for more Siskonpeti clips, and just lost an hour of my life watching "Ihmisten Puolue" (People's Party) instead.

TLDR: in each episode, the five "Party" members - the entire People's Party - discuss the news story of the week, and try to determine the Party position. It almost always ends up being a "compromise" of something semi-reasonable plus something completely opposite and awful tacked on.

All my "good glass" is APS-C.
That is truly sad. All (well, almost all) my good glass is FF. I planned it that way back in 1982...

... The vast, vast, VAST majority of photographers are limited by their skills, not their gear. Not that they will admit it.
Amen.

But still, I shoot APS-C format now in that DSLR which shall not be named.

Since I have a 1.5 crop factor, does that mean that I am 1.5 times lesser the photag than a fututre Pentax FF user ... or vice versa ?!

About LED's, the KS-1 should have had this feature to be a better commercial success .. plus some of the same music would be good, too.

It's a more complicated formula than that. The future FF photog is N times the photog you are, where:

N= 1.5 * (number of megapixels the fFF has) / (number of MP your camera has) * (weight of fFF) / (weight of your camera) * (list price of their best lens) / (list price of your best lens)

There are some other, fairly minor factors, like years of experience or actual paid work done, but this gives a good first approximation.

Good point.
Even that isn't too worrisome, but if he starts arguing with himself we may need to intervene.

...unless your camera is a 645. Then all of that is turned upside down

Yep - this was just for APS-C vs FF. The general formula was going to be too wide to fit on the screen. (yes, I started to write it) (facepalm)
