    I did clearly state in post wildlife in action and other action :)

    Its not a rule it is limitation of the technology in question.

    For example 1/2.3" sensor will struggle to take good low light shots without noise appearing. In some cases the sensor even has noise just above 100ISO.

    1/2.3" sensor cannot create de-focus around a subject say shooting a portrait.

    The are downsides to FF sensor, which is the body can be bulky and more important you need serious glassware for reach.

    1" sensors down the line will offer a sweet area between having sensor large enough for reasonable quality and noise at higher ISO. But small enough for keeping lenses on a diet. LOL

    I am not speaking as if I have not shot with cameras designed around 1/2.3" sensors I have and I soon found their limitations in certain conditions.

    I then move to a 1/1.5" sensor which produced much improved results. :)

    For me personally I like to travel light when shooting. This was from the experience of going digital from film SLR via a bridge camera.

    Just amazing being able to carry reasonable zoom and fit it in a single pocket or camera bag.

    So I now keep any kit at 1KG or below. :)
