can i just highlight to everyone the real advantage of FLM (otherwise known as crop factor - in DSLRs): it allows u to view a magnified image in the viewfinder in real time in the field when you are shooting.
i have seen many arguments about why FLM is a "farce" about multiplying focal length because it is really just a crop. yes, it is really just a crop and the actual focal length is not multiplied at all.
BUT this crop allows u to to view a maginfied image in the viewfinder in real time in the field when u are shooting. That, itself, is already a precious advantage that FF dslrs cannot provide.
hence, if u are like me, more of a tele shooter, i will advise u to go for a dslr with cropped sensor. so as to enjoy a magnified view in the viewfinder in real time in the field when u are shooting
unless of course, u like to spend more $ to buy a longer lens
