    the common reasons cited are:

    (1) feels good
    (2) looks good
    (3) feel pro
    (4) look pro

    here are some better reasons:

    (1) better control of depth of field
    (2) greater amount of detail, assuming you give the camera the best glass (which costs $$$ - justifiable for hobbyist? you decide)
    (3) better high iso performance (for now, CF is catching up)

    the widest rectilinear lens for a crop frame camera is 8mm. with 1.5x crop factor, that's... 12 mm hey presto.
    Hmm true true but in cases where the person only owns one FX lens, the FX body would come in useful for wider angles, not saying that the person can't get the DX lens but... well you know what i mean right, some people only buy FX lenses "just in case" they wanna go full frame.

    Sounds confusing and probably is confusing for many.
    1) On Canon (and TS is using Canon) you cannot mount DX lenses on FX bodies (in Canon terms: mounting EF-S lenses on a film / full frame body).
    2) Certain lenses simply don't exist as DX lenses. Have a look at the lens line-up.
    3) Certain FX lenses (Canon: EF, even L series) perform slightly better when used on a crop body (vignetting, corner sharpness).

    Haha yes, it sounds confusing, guess I was half asleep when i typed that. I understand what you mean. I'm just saying that some people go for FX lenses for the "just in case" reason. Then of course they can't get as wide an angle as on a full frame body
