    Had to choose Other as there's no APS-H (1.3x) crop selection. So FF & APS-H here.

    Although I guess I could have picked just general APS... Although I read that as 1.6x

    Full frame digital folks..... Unlike some things, when it comes to sensor size... Bigger is better without a doubt. when you bung 20 mil pixels on a cropped sensor the result is diminished quality especially in the noise dept.

    and less amount of light drawn in

    FF and Medium Format Digital for me. Its really really hard to go back to something smaller......

    Full frame by preference, since I've been able to afford one and see what it can do (had already been impressed was just a matter of getting one). Will go back to APS-C in times of need, or when I am looking for the advantages of the cropped sensor in terms of focal length.

    You know, I have both 35mm sized sensor (Canon 5D) and APS-C (Canon 7D), whilst I like the full frame goodness, I am not 100 percent convinced that it is the be all and end all or the "holy grail" of digital photography.

    I think a good bit of the increased quality from a FF sensor comes from the fact that cameras with the larger sensor are also in the higher end offerings, you don't get a consumer/prosumer grade FF camera

    it isnt. medium format hoses FF(35) for image quality every time, and for me, is nearing digital perfection. just wish I could justify forking out for a system. although there are some good offerings at more level headed prices from Mamiya and co. starting to appear

    I lumped all the APS ones together, cause there are several of them.

    Yeah, there are 1.4's 1.55's 1.6's that I am aware of, there could be more. I just though if I started listing each one, the poll gets bigger, so decided in APS only

    I'm not greedy. I've only got 8.2 Mil (30D) In my cropped sensor Still think it takes a better shot than my sons 50D , A 5D would be nice tho
    Canon : 30D, and sometimes the 5D mkIII , Sigma 10-20, 50mm 1.8, Canon 24-105 f4 L , On loan Sigma 120-400 DG and Canon 17 - 40 f4 L , Cokin Filters

    I am one of many that prefers the 20/30D sensor over the more noiser 40D and 50D cameras

    People can make multiple choices, so that will skew your additions

    I've been shooting full-frame digital (ie, digital 135-format) since 2006. Before that, I shot with an APS-C DSLR.

    I prefer the larger, brighter viewfinder and the fact that my lenses behave as they were designed.

    I can certainly see the advantage of APS-C and APS-H sensors for photography requiring long focal lengths and tight crops without discarding pixels (ie, sport and wildlife), but as I shoot neither, the advantage isn't in my favour.

    I've never looked into medium-format digital. Besides not being remotely necessary for anything I'm doing, it's prohibitively costly.
