This is a beaten topic, but of course very relevant, and I thought to share this new video here. He is a landscape photographer. It's interesting that James Popsys says he still uses G9 in good light, rather than his new Panasonic FF, when out and about. 20-24MP for him is enough, and he is not willing to sacrifice the greater low-light advantage for MP's.

His FF set weighs about the double of his M43 set, because of the difference in lenses, so for example in his bike rides in good light it's clear which he prefers.

He mostly talks about noise in this video, and didn't mention DR. He often has said how he always takes 3 shot brackets so that might be why. I think the DR gets more even with the 60 fps of the M43 sensor with not much ghosting because of the fastness?

But he has also said that he almost never creates an HDR image out of them. He picks the one exposure that contains the 'information' he wants (highlights and shadows), and edits just that one photo. This is something I have started to do as well, after reading this article: https://www.fastrawviewer.com/blog/exposure-bracketing

His video is one of the better ones about sensor sizes. I like how he seems to stay unbiased when it comes to MFT vs FF (even though he obviously has a bias in favour of Panasonic/Lumix).

Ah, I forgot about that. That's quite interesting, so he thinks M43 DR in single shots is mostly enough for his landscapes in good light.

I would tend to agree. I would also say, that if DR is not good enough on MFT, than usually the shot requires much more DR than even FF will provide, so you need to bracket either way. DR for me is mostly a nonissue in terms of FF vs MFT. The main advantages for FF are low light/high ISO (which not everyone needs) and more resolution (which is also very dependent on use). I'd like the latter, but a high-res mode would probably eliminate the desire for FF completely.
