Definitely the zoom for flexibility!

it´s been fun to follow the discussion. As I stated in the opening, I thought I had the pros and cons pretty clear, but realized that there was a bit more to it.
After about page 3 I thought I´d try to sum up the opinions so far, but I don´t think I´m the right guy for that. But it would be interesting if someone could try to make the comprehensive and objective list of pros and cons FF and crop.
Personally I have ordered the 7DII to be an addition to my 1DX for long reach, where I crop a bit too much today and where I also believe the AF will benefit from the 1.6x factor. I also see that it will be a very potent coupling with the 200-400mm f4L IS 1.4x lens. I do not use this lens for birding today, but I expect to do so with the 7DII. I´m also motivated by the AF and fps performance in such a small and light body, for long hikes, where size and weight are important issues.
But again, If someone could take on the challenge of making the ultimate objective guide to crop vs. FF ... Thank you in advance
In Norwegian, it would not be very commonly used, as a noun, but it would mean someone who are spreading lice ... Slightly less positive than the German version
@tayassu - Does Panasonic offer a water tight case to 140 feet/40 meters for the LX100 suitable for underwater photography?

You've inspired me to share my image of Black Beach in San Diego. I like this image so much that I printed it and have it hanging in my house. It constantly amazes me that I took it with a Canon SD600, even now that I have much more advanced equipment.
That is a very nice shot and it shows the great color reproduction and tonal qualities that Canon Powershots can be capable of. Thanks for sharing
He is 13 years old and needs an low light capable compact cam. Shooting indoor @ discos,...
It should be compact, as he is want to take it with him when he goes flying and doing much sports.
I would not use anything but FF in light that low. A 1" sensor is going to be a big compromise. With people moving in a disco, you need reasonably high shutter speeds, so ISO levels of 6400, 12800 and higher might be needed. Of course, he can possibly get some sort of image if there is a spotlight on the subject, but to capture the colors in low light is just plain difficult.
Also be aware that any laser light show will ruin the camera if the beam hits while the shutter is open. Its a common issue for newbies who try to take video at a laser light show. Warranties don't cover things like that either.
Thanks. He knows this problem. I know, that an 6D would be better. But to carry this Cam with the 24-70 2.8 around, is to much risk. Better an small camera. Lesser risk.
I understand the desire to want small, but if he wants to use it in low light, plan on returning it.
I would suggest a wide aperture f/1.4, f/2, or a 40mm f/2.8 over the 24-70mm L. I bought a G1 X MK II as a compromise, its reasonably small, not tiny, has a large almost APS-C size sensor, can do ISO 3200 in a pinch, and has a fairly large aperture at the wide end of the zoom.
I've yet to try it for low light events, however, here is a theater shot of a stationary subject with my G1 X MK I at ISO 3200 1/25 sec f/5 (New model has faster lens) Its ok for prints 8 X 10, but at 1:1, detail is definitely lost.
This is a jpeg processed from a raw exposure. I went light on NR to retain detail.
But the weak-minded are the (relative) masses and they influence or should influence what Canon does
And I don't see any reason not to post that here, as others complain here too, much heavier than I do.
I think Canon is more concerned with influencing them than the other way around – that's the point of advertising!
