    nth beats pixel density in crop sensor bodies.. FF have to stand one corner..

    I wouldn't get a FF lens for future use if I were still on a crop body. No point compromising for the time being and upgrading to FF with the same lens only to find that you don't like how the lens works for you on a FF compared to a crop.

    Downsides:

    1. Heavy as hell
    2. Expensive
    3. Zoom ranges optimized for FF may not be suitable for crop, e.g,. 28-70, 24-70. These are meant to be general zoom from wide to acceptable tele for FF. For cropped,. 28 and 24 is not that wide, and neither here nor there.
    4. For UWA on cropped, there is simply no FF lens available for that sort of range.

    This is the main reason why FF produce picture with less noise than crop (on top of NR). Else FF will just make LARGE noisy picture.

    The sensor in camera phone can beat that.

    I'm starting to acquire FF lens as I plann to upgrade to FF body once enough people donate to my "Buy-a-FF" fund.

    As lens built for the non-FF lens cannot be mounted on the FF body, that's the main reason for my switch to getting FF lenses.

    The downside, like so many have mentioned, is the cropped factor, which ironically is due to the body, not the lens. lol
